Windows 11/10 warns me low space, can I move some apps out of the system drive?
"Do you have the same problem that the system drive becomes full after updating Windows system into Windows 10? How? Is it possible to find a way to fix the low space issue in Windows 10 system partition? I have no spare unallocated space to be added to the system partition. So I'm wondering whether it's possible for me to move or migrate some apps, software or even game installation files to another hard drive or partition.
If I can do so, then I can save space for Windows 10. How can I do? And I don't think it will work by copying or cut installation files of apps or software to another hard drive or partition. If you do have any recommended methods to help me move Windows 10 apps to another hard drive or partition so to save space, please let me know. Thank you very much."
