Try to get rid of any old or unused applications from the "add remove programs" tag is control panel.

If you want me to look a little deeper into the topic I can.

Hi parislexi1,

Please check what amount of disk is occupied by "Windows Backup and Restore Utility". Please check the below mentioned link for more details:

download ccleaner ( https://filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ and click analyze and then press clean button. If this also doesnt free up much space, then right click on ur C drive, goto properties->General->tick compress files to save space. this might take some time so u hav to wait
