Re: 2018 with a 250 G hardrive?

the size of a drive or ssd is not the real available free space.
that 60 gb ssd only has about48gb free for your use because it uses about 12gb of space for its own use and is not available to you.

There is definitely something wrong, you can install Windowsssss and Office
on a system with a 60 Gb SSD and still have probably 40 Gb or more free
space. If you have a 250 Gb hard drive and there is nothing much other than
Windows and maybe Office there you should have at least 200 Gb or more free
space.
You said the computer was given to you, maybe it has an old Windows
installation on it although they only take maybe 3 or 4 Gb, I'd do a disk
cleanup and see what shows up and also make sure you check how much is in
the recycle bin.
Lastly, make sure the drive is not partitioned, maybe the C drive with the
Windows installation is just a 60 or 80 Gb partition and you have another
partition with the majority of the drive space in it.

Not sure, best buy said it had a 5.1 or slightly higher processor. I am sure
it is fast, just not sure it is big enough. I got it back from Best buy
Sunday Nov. 5 and already it says I just have about 39 Gs left of storage
space. .

I was given a HP lap top by a charitable group sponsored by the government.
It has 6 Gigs of ram and a 250 G hard drive. Is that enough to run JAWS
2018 as well as other related products? The agent knew I was blind.
Perhaps the agent being sighted was not aware of the size of hard drive
needed. After all, he didn't know Window Eyes had been discontinued. I
don't want to look a gift horse in the mouth however, fear the hard drive is
not big enough to handle accessibility products. It was suggested I just
send the lap top back.
