Follow the steps to free some space on the windows installation drive i.e. Windows directory.
Step 1: Delete the SoftwareDistribution folder.
> Click Start, type services.msc and then hit enter.
> From the list of services, right click on "Windows Update" service and then click Stop.
> Open the Windows Directory and then delete the SoftwareDistribution folder. Note: SoftwareDistribution folder is the folder where the updates are downloaded. Once the updates are installed on the computer, the downloaded contents can be removed from the SoftwareDistribution folder or the SoftwareDistribution folder itself can
be deleted as this folder will be recreated automatically when we scan for the windows updates once again.
> Once the SoftwareDistribution folder is removed, then start the "Windows Update" service successfully.
> "Windows Update" is the service that enables us to scan for the windows updates successfully. So please make sure to start this service, if it's not started, then we will not be able to scan for the windows updates successfully.
Step 2: Remove unwanted softwares that are not required on the computer to increase the space.
> Remove temporary files and folder.
> Click Start, type %temp% and hit enter.
> Select and delete all the temp files and folders from the temp folder.
> Ignore the files and folders that gives an error message.
> Click Start, type cleanmgr and then hit enter.
> Select the appropriate option and remove the unwanted data.
