    During a Windows 10 update, I realised that I did not have enough space to complete it (storage is only 32GB of eMMC memory) so I asked for help from my nephew who went on an over zealous deletion scheme. He has obviously removed some vital system files so, while I can still boot up and login, I can't access the Control Panel, Settings, System Restore. I have tried reinstalling Windows 10 using a USB memory stick but the laptop gets stuck in a loop while checking for memory space. As there isnt actually anything I need on the laptop, I've considered a hard reset as an option but have had a problem initiating this. I've used the Alt and F10, on boot up, method of accessing the reset option but it won't succesfully reset as an error message is shown after a long time simply stating that an error has occurred while has stopped the procedure. Can anyone offer any advice on the matter? I realise that the Acer Aspire R11 is a very basic piece of kit but it is useful for me at times so I'd rather try to keep it going than abandoning it.
