Windows 10: Anniversary update on Asus T100 not enough space

    Anniversary update on Asus T100 not enough space

    Anyone know how to solve the problem of "not enough hard disk space" when trying to put the Anniversary update on an Asus T100.
    I have a 64Gb sdcard in as well but I assume the update must be ignoring that.
    Tried clearing out as much as I could from the main ssd but still no joy.

    Does the Asus T100 have a recovery partition? On devices with small ssds like yours, it's possible to move the recovery partition to an external drive, then reclaim the disk space used by the recovery partition. You can also make a system image to an external drive using software like Macrium Reflect and then the recovery partition isn't needed at all.

    How much space does the installer say you need to free up?

    That Asus T100 is a Tablet and most have a slot for the MicroSDHC card which gives a second drive for additional storage. Some things could be moved onto it, I have a 32GB on a Win10 8" Tablet and 16GB on an Android 7".

    There is no recovery partition and I have a 64Gb sdcard in it as well.

    Actually, I may be ok. I've just run "Disk cleanup" for the second time, rebooted and it seems to be doing the job now.
    Not sure why but fingers crossed.
