    hey, you can delete the unimportant files on the space insufficient partition to free up more space. However, this method cannot sovle the proplem for a long time. You can use AOMEI Partition Assistant to help you increase your virtual memory. http://www.disk-partition.com/free-partition-manag...

    Deleting the old updates will free up disk space, and is safe, once you determine you are going to keep the updates (you lose the ability to uninstall updates). After looking through your drive and deleting anything you don't want any more, be sure to defrag. Sometimes, you actually get a little more space that way, too. Plus, defragmenting helps your computer work better.

    You'd better try to download CCleaner, a program that frees up space. You should try to unistall some unuseful programmes you don't use regularly. Here're some links:
