Lenovo Yoga 300 11BR low on disk space

I Have a Lenovo Yoga 300 11BR.  This operates Windows 10, but with only 29 Gbs is totally unworkable,  I have nothing stored as all photos etc on a usb.  To date 16 Gbs taken with Windows and Microsoft stuff, plus built in app which the majority I do not want.  Daily the storage disappears with updates and auto installations.  I have reset back to factory restore but the same thing happens.  Lenovo should never have produced this laptop with Windows 10.  I hate it...Anyone else having the same problems.

Re: Lenovo Yoga 300 11BR

let's try windows disk cleanup.

Start>windows admin tools>disk cleanup  Select C drive.

Now select clean up system files (left bottom of screen).  Select C drive.

Now select all in the list except thumbnails 


Note the "windows update cleanup" on my system is 6.11 GB.

This cleanup will run several hours.

Re: Lenovo Yoga 300 11BR

I've got the same problem, too. Then i've read, that an additional SSD could be installed, you're needing a cable to connect it to the Motherboard and a braket to fix it in the case.
I've bought a SSD and the cable and then i've disassembled the Laptop. For my huge surprise, the socket, where i could connect the cable, wasn't installed. :-(
So i hope, the socket would be available and i'll install the socket to the Mainboard and i could use my bigger SSD.

Hi.  Thankyou for your response.  I tried the cleanup as you suggested, Unfortunately didn't gain much a few mgbt's as all that is on the laptop is connected to windows and microsoft operating systems.   Thankyou.

I've done this with my Lenovo yoga 300-11IBR and it made very little difference. Please advise.
