Re: 2018 with a 250 G hardrive?


 

Yes, but a Windows and Office installation takes no more than 6 or 8 Gb so even if you start out with 48 Gb you still have 40 Gb left. Anyhow, it comes down to unimportant details, the point I wanted to make is that 250 Gb is a multiple of what you need to run Windows and Office and some other applications, as somebody else pointed out, they are running Windows 10 on a system with a 32 Gb SSD and below are the hardware requirements according to Microsoft, essentially Windows 10 should be able to run on just about any system that can run Windows 7 and in some cases I would say Windows 10 runs better:

Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster
RAM: 1 gigabyte (GB) (32-bit) or 2 GB (64-bit)
Free hard disk space: 16 GB
Graphics card: Microsoft DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM driver
A Microsoft account and Internet access

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.
