My Linx10 runs a wimboot version of Windows 8.1 that uses a compressed file system to provide sensible usable space.
The machine, left on its own, attempts to install an uncompressed Windows 10. I have on 3 occasions just caught it in time, and have now been forced to disable all updates rather than try to make my podgy fingers enable and disable those which are acceptable and those which are not.
Without disabling completely the "Upgrade to Windows 10" re enables itself every time I start the machine.
I dislike Windows 8.1 intensely on tablet and on laptops, although I like my Windows 8.1 phone that works well.
If Windows 10 is better on a 10" tablet than Windows 8.1, Linx should either provide a downloadable and installable wimboot image file for Windows 10, or at the very least provide a straightforward patch to permanently remove and disable the intrusive Windows 10 Microsoft upgrade.
I'd be interested if anyone could correct any of my assumptions here as, at the moment, I'm finding the Linx not fit for purpose.
The device has 32GB of storage. So either you have it filled with old temp files etc etc or you have install lots of stuff to fill it up.
Have you tried refreshing, wiping out everything and then do a windows update. As a refresh you should have atleast 20GB of space.
It has to uncompress the install.wim before it can install it.
You should also bare in mind that some things may not work correctly after update. You may have to take steps to rectify those issues.
How much space do you actually have and have you tried drive clean up?
