As I stated in my first post it under system files while running disc clean app it indicates that there are 3.96 gig of windows updates that can be cleaned. Unfortunately, it never cleans any of them, even though it says its doing so.
I also did what was suggested regarding C;\windows\softwaredistribution\download\ which I thought would do the trick. However, it didn't. The updates mainly consist of newer build(s) of window 10, which apparently even though the newest supersedes the older, it does not remove the prior version of windows 10 update.
After updating to the latest build, I got a message indicating low on storage space, and am unable to install the latest security patches issued yesterday.
Before I go any further, I should mention to anyone responding that the PC in question is an Intel Computestick, which I use to essentially for accessing streaming services via smart TV (kind of like giving it a Cambridge education versus a community college, LOL). Barring an Revo uninstaller app, and CCleaner, nothing else is taking up space except for the aforementioned installed windows update(s). Storage space is limited to 10 gig, and those installed updates are eating up almost 40%.
Microsoft tech responded saying that keeps the software stored for up to 10 days post install (ie security patches, updates, etc.) however, it keeps all the build updates stored in case there's an error and and one has to return to prior build
