Stream Notebook low space for upgrades

Q: Stream Notebook low space for upgrades

I do not have enough space to allow Microsoft upgrades. I have wiped everything clean and still no space. This has been a problem for several updates now. How do I increase the hard drive?

Preferred Solution: Stream Notebook low space for upgrades

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

while trying to download and update to windows 10 i keep getting stopped at  Note enough space, its saying i need 5GB of space. my RAM is only 2GB. does this mean i cant get windows 10? or must i get an external hard drive? 

A:hp stream notebook 11 windows 10 space help

shannel First of all, you're confusing memory with disk space.  The Win10 Upgrade typically needs 20GB of disk space, and as your laptop most likely has only a 32GB drive, it has nowhere near enough space to do the upgrade. Second, the 2GB you mention is system memory, which is totally unrelated to disk space. Personally I would advise strongly AGAINST doing the Win10 Upgrade, as it is a LOT of work and even when that's done, folks have complained about later, not being able to apply the Cumulative Updates, and there is a BIG one coming out the beginning of August! Here is a link from somone with a similar model who did perform the upgrade: How I was able to install Windows 10 on HP Stream 13 (32GB S... - HP Support Forum - 5179626

I bought a HP Stream Notebook PC13 with Windows 10 already installed. I only use this computer to surf the web, but it does have an active trial version of Microsoft Office.  There are no additional programs, photos, videos, etc. downloaded to the computer beyond the original bundle.  The notebook has a 28GB hard drive and 3.58 GB are free.  I cannot run the Windows 10 update with so little free space on the hard drive.  I have a number of files that I think I can delete (Evernote and McAfee), but still not enough to download the Windows 10 update. What's the easiest way of identifying trash to delete?  Finally, any idea why HP built this notebook in a manner that updates are cumbersome/problematic?

I have an external hard drive in which I used for the upgrade. I have kept it plugged in. Please let me know how to break the circle of restarting and let it either install Windows 10 or 8. Thanks!Louie

I dont store anything on the device itself, i use a USB. The only software i have loaded was windows 365. When i got it i asked in the shop if with only 32GB storage it would be compatable with windows 365 applications. The guy said it would be fine. Now my device is totally full, i cant do anything, i cant even get MS to connect remotely to sort out an outlook issue as there is no space left.  I have cleared as much as i can, I see from some other posts thats you can mess about in the system settings but i dont know much about these things and i dont want to make it worse.

You can't increase disk space. You might be able to get a little by disabling the system protection for the system disk and the recovery partition.You might be able to get a little by disabling the system protection for the system disk and the recovery partition. HP Stream isn't really what I would call a notebook. 2GB and 32 GB eSATA storage is pretty much the bare minimum for running Windows 10. I am not saying that to try to hurt your feelings. It is just that even my Samsung s7 mobile phone has more storage space than an HP Stream does.  I suggest that if you have anything to save then save it either online in a cloud or to an external storage device. Updating the Stream to a more recent version of Windows 10 isn't going to work if you try to do it with Windows update. There just isn't enough storage space on the HP Stream to let that be a possibility. I suggest that you turn off Windows updates to avoid the problem you are asking about. Otherwise, it will happen again and again.  I am all about reducing frustration.

Hi Lori,  I use SanDisc Memory card for both my Laptop and Camera..   Its really good..  Compact And excellent performance..  I would suggest u to by a 64GB or 128GB Memory card for storage..  But 128gb sd cards are more than 2 or 3 times expensive than the 64gb memory cards..  64gb would cost u around $30 but 128gb would be costing around $70 or more.. So, wat i would suggest is to buy an 1TB External Hard drive which would cost u around $50...   Western Digital and Seagate are good..  I prefer WD and i own one..So u can do like this - keep a budget of $80 and purchase a 1TB WD Ext HDD and a 64 GB micro SD card..  (Product pricing may vary)..   But remember this - Internal Hard disc or the External HDD, both a very delicate..  Should be handled with atmost care.. You Drop down your HDD once, thats it, its gone.. Dead..    But Memory cards are strong, can handle Drops, bumps and pressures..    And yes, i both HDD and mmc, u can store Media files (Pics, Movies and Songs), Software files (exe files only), games and other documents..   But u can not "install" Softwares or games into mmc ot ext HDD, there r chances that it wont work.. Also mmc are Compact but Ext HDD are not..  So upto u to decide..    Mark this Reply as "Accept as Solution" if it solves your problem.  Click "thumb up" just to say Thanks..Good Luck!! - Raj

I bought my HP stream notebook off my sister in law about 8 months ago. It was pretty much brand new, had nothing on it, and I needed it for school. I do not download music, movies, or anything like that. I have only used it for social media, school and watching some videos. When I first got it my sister in law had forgotten her password to delete her account as an admin off of it, so I just created another account. However it's having serious issues. Firefox and edge crash constantly, it won't allow me to do a system restore, and because she was the main administrator it blocks me from making some changes. While it's turned on a lot of the icons are not visable, also the low disk space error pops up all the time. I have deleted as much stuff as I can. What is the problem and what can I do?? When I try to do a system restore it says I do not have any previous check points and won't allow me. I have a very good virus protection through my internet provider. It says there is no virus.

I have resolved my issue. The problem was that the laptop casing near the area of the power button had become a little bit loose. Everytime I moved the laptop it must have activated the power button and turned if off. I had a look on the underside of the laptop, and found a screw underneath one of those rubber stickers in the corners. It turns out that it had loosened itself over time. I screwed it back in, the casing is now more tight, and the problem has stopped occuring.

@VictoriaKK? There are lots of systems in this category  I pulled the Specs of one of these:HP Stream Notebook - 14-z001na Product Specifications In the case of the example, the disk space available is a mere 32GB. This amount of disk space is enough for the Operating System -- and not much else. Notebooks of this type are intended to be used with Cloud storage services -- that is you must expect to run programs like "Office Word" in the Cloud and then store the files you create in the Cloud, too. For example, you could opt to run Office 365 and then store any files you create in your Cloud storage file system.  (Example of a remote storage service:  OneDrive). Anything you try to store directly on the computer is going to eat away at the tiny amount of available space on the system. You might augment the space you need to store your files by installing a Flash Drive (USB Drive) in one of the two available USB ports.  When you wish to save a file locally, use the USB Drive as the destination. When you see a Post that helps you,Inspires you, provides fresh insight,Or teaches you something new,Click the "Thumbs Up" on that Post. Click my Answer Accept as Solution to help others find Answers.

I got a Stream 11 Signature Edition (blue) from the Microsoft Store for Christmas a few weeks ago. So far I've enjoyed it. My wife has too in fact, so we decided to get her one also. We ordered hers directly from the HP Store. It's not a Signature Edition, and is magenta. It came in today, and I noticed that her space bar feels different than mine. On mine, all the keys have a consistent feel (a certain level of snappiness or clickiness). That is, except the space bar. It feels more "mushy." It's as though there's something under the space bar that is preventing it from being fully depressed. It normally doesn't interefere with its functionality, but there are occasions where it will register two spaces instead of one, or no spaces instead of one. Although I was by no means in love with this quirk, I just figured that's how it was designed, and I'd just need to adjust. Until we got my wife's in today. Her space bar is not mushy. Rather, it is just as snappy and responsive as all the other keys. Thus, I'm inclined to think my space bar is, shall we say, a bit defective. What should I do about it? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks! Incidentally, the clicking action on her touchpad also feels different (i.e., better) than on mine.

Hi to all an anybody that can help.. I do like my HP Stream, alot of negative post about space issues i have found, but I knew that when buying it that it was not huge, did find out later that it was a closed system, but that was the exchange for the lower price. Now what i am hoping for is a way around, meaning resolve the problem and quit complaining about the problem. So question i have are related to the update in Windows 10 for update 1607. I updated to 10 already and I am looking to update to the 1607 and am out of room by the needed 8 gb for the update, i have only 2.6 left and cleaned up as much as i can. So my question is can a SD card of any size be allocated in the C Drive for more capacity, or by using a SD card is there any work around that might help. I will admit i am not a novice tech guy, but can follow a step by step plan if given one. My issue with this has taught me plenty but no one seems to be asking my exact question.

Ok, so I bought this machine with the understanding that it has very limited storage space, much like a notebook. It's intended use is to handle documents or access the web, and an intrepid designer like me has room to install my editing software and work. Awesome. I also understood at the time that I could either manually upgrade the memory and switch to an external wifi card, or buy an external hard drive and just install and run things from there as needed. Still good. Not bad for a $200.00 dollar machine.

Like a lot of people, even though I purchased my machine for work I'd still like to have at least one decent game on here. Sometimes you have to kill zombies. Or raise them. whatever. I can think of a few decent games that range from 8-10 GB of storage space and I'd be happy with any one of them, and here comes the issue at hand.
With a storage space of 32GB at default, all system files, updates and built in applications leave you with an initial 4.5 or so GB freed up for storage. You can add the virtual memory and etc doing it's thing into that pool. I need more room and I do not currently have money for either of the aforementioned solutions, I will not for some time. I manually went in and gleefully started removing things. Bye bye Mcafee, so long Office, etc. Purged apps, purged everything I safely could. I'm not new to this, however I have been out of the windows loop for quite some time. I'm an XP wizard and was a fair hand wit... Read more

A:Clearing space on my HP Stream Laptop

None of your photobucket pic links came out.
We do not suggest removing anything, your easiest solution is to get a USB HDD. You can get a 1TB for around $50 US https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_s...=3DEVJ8VNHB413
If you leave it connected, you can move your User files (ie) Pictures, Music, Documents, Game Saves etc to the USB HDD to save space.

The hard drive is full of Win10 and operating files very small amount of disc space left for anything at allI have researched this cleaned the disc and the system filesThis machine is now completely uselessYou know about this issue and yet you still sell the product knowing it is nothing but a blue coloured paperweight It worked with windows 8 It freezes and hangs with win 10, there is no space for any programsPlease advise on what I can do to allow this notebook work!!!!!

A:Lack of Disc Space on HP Stream 13

I did not sell anything and the people here are not HP employees. Did you upgrade it from Windows 8 to Windows 10? Have you used disk cleanup to remove the old vestiges of Windows 8?  https://www.cnet.com/how-to/how-to-delete-the-windows-old-folder-from-windows-10/ If not, about all you can do is install a secure digital card and mount it as a second hard drive and we can help you move your library (docs, pictures, etc) files to it and also perhaps uninstall some programs and reinstall them on the SD card.  Yes 32 gigs was too small for a Windows computer but I do not think the fact that there is a 32 gig hard drive was ever hidden from the purchasing public and these sold for a very, very low price. Consumers keep going for these unrealistically low-priced computers and then complain when they are not working out. When it is time for a new computer, please research what you are getting and understand the capabilities of the hardware. American consumers are pretty good on that with cars, computers not so much. I also blame Geek Squad and the like for not providing point of sale education. Enough on the soapbox. Post back if any of this makes no sense.

This computer is used by a class of 33 students. The Student brought me the computer with a white screen. He said all he did was boot it up. I turned it off and turned it on several times and it just gives you the white screen. I tried hitting the esc key when turning on the computer I was able to see the screen for a few seoconds and selected f2 but then it also became a white screen. So I connected it to a projector using an HDMI cable and it I was able to see it. I  logged in and can do anything i need if it's connected to the projector. I've looked at the computer there are no dings or scratches, I've pressed around the screen and hinges area to  see if there is something loose but it will not show the screen. So my question is what now? The warrenty expired Jan 7. Is it the screen that needs replacing or is it possibly a wire that loose inside?  This is the same batch of computers that I had one computer overheat while being turned off and charging. It  started burning and smoking two weeks ago from the plug that goes into the computer. I'm starting to worry that these computers cannot handle the use of students daily for four hours. I haven't hand any issues with our chromebook carts or macbooks. Looking for a solution thanks.

Hi Im having great trouble with this notebook.... it was working fine but it was begining to be loaded with lots of items that were no longer needed so i decided to complete a hard reset/restore back to factory settings. i followed the instructions and the restore started it got to around 65% and then a message appeared on the screen stating that an error had happened, the only oprion was to continue with the process, so i clicked continue. Now the screen simply rotates between a Hp logo screen and a black screen and nothing else. I have tried several things - upon start up i press esc f11 shows that the "machine needs repairing"?? with an error code 0000225 currently the notebook is completely inopperable...Please help! 

A:Restore problem stream 11 notebook

@Mark-J1 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums! This error code means one or more of the boot loader files has been corrupted. You will need access to a working PC for this step in order to create the media needed to repair your PC boot loader.Once you have that, please download and create Win10 install media from this link: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/media-creation-tool-install?ocid=ms_wol_win10Note that when you go do download and build install media, the tool defaults to matching what is already installed on your PC (as in, Home for Home, 64-bit for 64-bit). While you CAN change these settings, do NOT. If you do, the resulting media will be different and will force you to enter a NEW product code!Boot from the media you created, and follow the directions in this link: http://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/2294-advanced-startup-options-boot-windows-10-a.htmlYou will need to go to the Advanced Options screen and click on Startup Repair. You will probably have to run Startup Repair three times for it to fix all the boot loader problems.When done, your PC should boot OK. If it does not, there is a more serious problem.Good Luck

The notebook was trying to run an update, a problem occured and everything froze. It would not turn  off so had to let it run out of power so it could be turned back on. Afterwards a message came up to advise not enough space to perform the update with an icon to click to clear available space which I did. It did this then I think tne update failed. After that word will not open, I click on the icon to open  but nothing happens. The product is under warrenty still, I just have no clue what to do. Can anyone help?  Please!

My OS is 32 or 64. I don't know how to find that. I have installed 13 apps on my new notebook and the storage is full. I can't download anything. I have read that you can add an sd card for additional storage. How do I do that? I've gotten rid of a few apps and do the disc clean-up daily, but nothing really helps. I am a novice user who searches the internet and I store photos of the grandkids. My apps are news and facebook/messenger. So far this thing doesn't do me much good. Any advice?

A:adding storage to my new stream notebook

On the left side is a card slot.   You put one of these in the card slot. An SD card you can buy at any office or camera store.    To insert a card: Hold the card label-side up, with connectors facing the slot, insert the card into the slot, and then push in on the card until it is firmly seated. To remove a card: Press in on the card it until it pops out Once the card is in the slot it will show up as a device and you need to give it a drive letter, generally D: After that, you can move all the files in your libraries (documents, pictures, etc) and your downloads folder to the SD card. This tells how generally: http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/how-to-increase-storage-space-on-windows-8-1-devices-with-sd-cards/ This says Windows 8 but the process is similar in Windows 10. This is also helpful: http://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/8822-library-save-location-set-windows-10-a.html And this: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/redirect-folder-new-location#1TC=windows-7 When you install an application, many of them will give you the choice where to install during the process. By default they want to install in C:\program files. Put a program files folder on the SD card and then you can direct program installs to the SD card where you are given the option. You might even uninstall some of the ones you already have and reinstall them on SD card.  Post back if you need more help. If this is "th... Read more
