Hi guys, Sorry if this question has been asked a zillion times, haven't found the search feature yet and I'm unable to find what I need.
I am trying to get an Acer netbook up and running. It came with Win 10. I can't figure out what model it is but that may be besides the point. I had to put win 8 on to a flash drive to get it into the netbook, no cd drive. I had to custom install win 8 to get it to go. Now I have it up and running and I am trying to install the 163 updates so I can get it to 8.1, so I can get the free win 10 upgrade. Screwball way to do it I know, but win 8's what I got.
In an effort to free up some space on the SSHD I got rid of file windows.old.000. Got about 1/3 of my space back, but still can't get the updates done before running out of space again. I need to try to get rid of windows.old but get a warning that I need admin permission to delete it. the actual warning is, "You require permission from SYSTEM to make changes to this folder". ummmm what?
I am on the only account on it and I just checked to make sure I am the admin.
If anyone has ideas, throw them out there, I'm kinda stuck. When it comes to technical terms, feel free to dumb it down. I have built my own enthusiast grade gaming rig and I know how to get stuff working, but there is a bunch of stuff I don't know. ie C++, etc. Don't be afraid to throw step by step instructions in any responses. And thanks in advance!
