There is serious problem with inexpensive laptop pc’s. Poor people trying to get started in life are enticed to purchase a $200 laptop and find out it has limit of 20 GB disk space for Windows 10 OS and recovery files and applications. After a couple of windows Updates, the drive is full and there isn’t even room to install needed software. Of course, documents and pictures are stored on a USB drive or SD. I need to increase the size of my C: boot drive so that my Windows 10 OS can run and install needed software. There are no other drives to shrink/delete! Perhaps span the C: to a SD?
Thanks for any advice that works.
