External hard drive for hp stream 14

My HP Stream 14 has actually no room left on its inner HDD after only installing Windows Updates and also Microsoft Office 365 - please assist!

Hey folks,

I obtained an HP Stream 14 a couple of months back for grad college. It was cheap and seemed to be whatever I necessary.

You watching: External hard drive for hp stream 14

I choose the lapoptimal itself, however I store running into storage problems. I've just done Windows Updates (I'm on 8.1) and also mounted Microsoft Office 365 and I have less than 10 MB of area remaining on my HDD!

This is frankly unacceptable. I am making use of a 32gig SD card to put bigger documents on, however I can't conserve ANY documents on my laptop's HDD due to the absence of room.

I've tried eexceptionally way to get even more memory (even did a fresh install) but I still wound up utilizing nearly eexceptionally MB on my HDD.

I'm assuming it's the Windows Updays that are hogging so much space. Should I carry out a clean wipe to and simply not install any updates, or is tbelow some method I deserve to clean up my HDD without doing that?

Thanks!

Run the Disk Cleanup tool, and also then at the bottom of the home window that pops up, click "Clean up device files". Check every little thing, hit OK, and also let it run. You will certainly totally free up a number of GB for certain.

Anvarious other thing to execute is disable hibernate file. Run CMD as Administrator, and also type the following:

powercfg hibernate off

Enjoy your additional space!

Disabling hibernate appeared to assist a lot! I also cleaned up my mechanism records but it just cleared about 90mb worth of information.

However, I simply rebooted after doing an additional windows upday (considering that I had space free!) - and I'm ago up to 2.8 gigs! Which isn't a lot however it's enough that I don't need to tension around downloading and install every bit point.

Anymeans, thanks so a lot for the suggestion!

Do a compressed install (different than a WimBoot install). I haven't tried this for Win8, but for Win7 I can quickly gain a full OS and a bunch of programs on a 16GB drive.

Reinstall home windows from scrape, and after the installer reboots for the initially time boot off the install disk aget rather of the system disk, and choose repair, then drop to a command prompt. Run "d:/windows/system32/compact.exe d:/. /c /s /i" (assuming D:/ is your major home windows partition once you boot right into recovery mode). Once the command completes, reboot and finish the home windows install from the disk.
