    You can still get into Windows right? Then start deleting things you no longer use. I assume you are using Windows 10. Please confirm.

    You can also run Administrative Tools > Disk Clean up. Be aware that after the first scan it does, there is a button to press so it does an in depth scan and that will find more things you can remove. Then let it remove them.

    Another thing you can do is eliminate the sleep mode file save folder, that can be several GB.Right click on Command and choose Run as Admin. Then type in "powercfg /h off" .

    Then go to the downloads folder and delete old setup programs you no longer use. That will free up some space.

    Windows needs around 50GB free space generally to do it's own things. A big Windows Update could require a bit more.

    You need to get into the system and then try a few things. Go download MS Media Creation Tool on another PC. Run it and Generate a Windows setup DVD / USB memory stick. Boot with that, on the second screen choose Repair. Find the command prompt. Try C: D: E: until you find the \Windows folder, then you have found your original drive C. Then CD into \Windows\System32 and run cleanmgr.exe which is Disk Cleanup mentioned in above post. That should start scanning for things to remove.

    The powercfg command may not work because you are not booting with your own system but using the setup disk.

    Then go to the downloads folder and delete old setup programs you no longer use. That will free up some space.
