"Please tell me how to fix a stuck Windows 10 Redstone update trying to install on my computer. Every time I start my computer (upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 just 20 days ago), Windows promts a message kinda forcing me to get the update version. Yes, the Windows update is available, it's version 11082. I mean, who don't like updates? So I just did. It takes for a while, I know that, but I never expect for so long! I see Windows 10 working really hard on the installing work, but the efforts are in vain, it stuck at 75%, then 76%...but won't go further while the Windows logo loops. I need your help."

Two Possible Ways to Help Fix Redstone Update Stuck on Install

1. Free up some space on C drive

It's critical for a successful Windows update installation on a computer. Since Windows 10 update data, files takes a certain amount of disk space of C drive, you have to ensure the C drive space is large enough to hold them. Usually, people are not so good at manage and organize their computer hard drive, so probably C drive is filled with most of the computer data, including system data, files, and personal stuff like downloads, programs, documents, large size pictures, video files...which easily causes Windows 10 low disk space.

If your update problem results from not enough space on C drive, it's easy to handle by using a free partition manager. Just extend C drive space by shrinking another drive with plenty unused space. EaseUS Partition Manager can help achieve the goal, you can extend C drive space as much as the update requires. Follow the guide below.

Step 1. Install EaseUS Partition Master on your Windows 10 computer. Launch it, and right-click the partition that you want to carve up free space for the C: drive on the disk map, and choose "Resize/Move partition".
