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.

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.
