    Windows Updates


    Is it normal for the SSD to lose space everytime there is an update? I lost 2GB on todays update. Have already done the Disk Cleanup files removal which recovered some but I am about 2-3 GB less than before the update. Thanks

    I am pretty sure todays update was nowhere near 2 GB's so I do not know why you gained that much space.

    If you want to remove some of the installers for update's to gain some space you should follow this tutorial from TenForums written by Brink
    Disk Cleanup - Open and Use in Windows 10

    Follow all the steps and also step 5

    Thanks but I did that prior to my post running the Disk Cleanup. At the completion I was still 2 GB less that prior to the update.
