    I have a new 15 inch HP Omen that comes with 2 drives, one of them is a terabyte solid state hard drive.
    I installed GTA V onto my laptop and a couple small games (civ 4 and minecraft) and it's telling me my disk space is full and I can't install anything else.

    My boyfriend has very similar specs on his pc and has installed over 10 games easily.

    How do I free up space and enable myself to have more than 1 major game on my laptop ?

    Thank you for any and all suggestions!

    Are you sure you installed the games on the TB SSD and not the other drive? I'm guessing this may be a smaller boot drive and the installers have defaulted to this one. If this is not the case, I recommend using WinDirStat to analyse the disk usage on the 1TB drive, since these games should not occupy that amount of space; it's likely something else, and the application I pointed to should help you determine that.
