    I have already done that but I still have only 3.89 gb of space
    I have removed the programs I installed as well as data
    I have removed as many of the software that will allow deleting by going to settings_apps_apps and features
    but even though they have been removed I do not gain any more free space. even after I have followed you suggeation and selected every thing

    Any Windows device with only 32gb of storage space is essentially not up to the task. Windows has been and always is a space hungry monster. One of your options would be to backup all your files and do a full system wipe and clean install using the new version. Then ensure you keep your updates timely and with only 32gb of storage space you simply must keep your disk cleanups regular, methodical and thorough.

    At your own responsibility, you can also try these tips from one of our TFF Legends, leeshor...

    So many questions about running out of disk space, this may help. I take zero responsibility for what may happen using these suggestions. Use them wisely.

    There is one location on your disk that does not appear by default. That one spot can accumulate a lot of files you may never see. This is how to find and delete them.

    1st thing
    This step must come prior to the following step. Go to the control panel. Find "Folder Options" or "File Explorer Options" (depending on the version of Windows you are using). Open that then click the view tab. click on "Show Hidden Files, Folders and Drives" (no problem if you don't see that exact verbiage).

    Now you will be able to see the previously hidden folder by going to
    C:\users\yourusername\appdata\local\temp. Delete all the files that will delete, (some current ones won't)

    2nd thing
    In Windows Explorer right click on your Local C: drive, left click on properties, click the disk cleanup button. For most of you the next screen will present you with yet another disk cleanup button to the left of where the first one was. Click that one. The next screen will look similar to the last screen and will contain a list of things that can be deleted, including logs and possibly some leftover updates. (note that one of the item may be your old Windows if you did an in-place upgrade to Windows 10 so be careful if you don't want to lose that). After checking the items to delete and clicking delete files you will need to do a restart of Windows for it to complete. Give it a few minutes o settle down as it' doing some background maintenance.

    3rd thing
    Grab a copy of CCleaner. Be certain to double check the defaults so that you don't delete some possibly important cookies and/or passwords. Analyze and clean.

    4th thing
    Go to c:\windows\temp and delete those files. There may not be a lot there but every little bit helps.

    If you still think something is taking up some space that shouldn't be double check your download folder to make certain you haven't forgotten a download that can be deleted or off-loaded to external storage.

    Extreme Caution follows and not all commands may work on your system

    You can also execute the following commands at an elevated command prompt:

    (Note that the following command should be in your scheduled tasks)
    This command will remove files needed if you need to uninstall service packs. You won’t be able to uninstall any currently installed service packs after running this command:
    DISM.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /SPSuperseded

    The following command will remove all old versions of every component. You won’t be able to uninstall any currently installed service packs or updates after this completes:
    DISM.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase

    This is a utility you may want to try. It cleaned up 3.2GB of files on my system.
    PatchCleaner | homedev - software development out of the box I strongly suggest moving those files rather than deleting them.

    Thank you for all the suggestions .

    I have done every thing every one suggesed and still there is only 8 gb of space so I am just going to bin this Asus tablet and buy someting with a decent storage capacity. i only bought it 2 months ago so very dissapointed about that.

    I was aware of the small capacity when I bought it but it never occured to me that virtually the entire ssd would be occupied by windows 10 and the Asus installed software.

    very dissapointing actually as I like the removable / reversable keyboard

    There is also the recovery partition that takes up at least 8 - 10GB. If you are going to remove this partition to create space, we recommend creating a recovery drive first before proceeding.

    To create the recovery drive follow these steps:

    1. In the search bar, type Create, and click on Create a recovery drive under control panel.
    2. Ensure that "Back up system files to the recovery drive" is checked then click Next.
    3. Insert an external flash drive 8GB or more, and click Next.
    4. Everything on the external flash drive will be deleted. Click Create.
    5. The system will start to create the recovery drive. After it's done, click on Finish.

    More often than not a third party program would be needed to merge the partitions into one. However, we cannot recommend one and we do apologize.

    I have removed all google that I installed and recovered a lot of space but still not enough for the windows 10 update that wants 8 gb !

    annoyingly I still keep getting messages that I am running out of memory space and then IE (or edge) closes down even with the spare space on the drive that I now have.

    I wonder with this tiny ssd if running on android might not be better?
