:welcome:   mrmonkeyshoes,

 

i have a new viglen win10 tablet, it says it has 16gb space but when i look in disc manager it says i only have 13gb,

 

 

Is that 13GB of available storage space or does that include the present installation of Windows 10.

 

then new update for win 10 is 8gb 

 

 

Can I ask where you read the above information, to download and install Windows 10 you only need a 5GB USB thumb drive so an 8GB Windows update seems rather on the large size.

 

In case you are not already aware, 32-bit Windows 10 requires 16GB of storage space and the 64-bit version requires 20GB so unless you have 64-bit Windows 10 you should be fine with the 16GB that you have.

Apologies for the delay getting back to you, work and more work I`m afraid  :(

 

From your screenshot it looks like it is the Creators Update that cannot be installed, this is effectively a new version of Windows 10 and Windows is telling you that your Viglens HDD is not large enough to accommodate it, is it the 32 or 64-bit version of Windows that you are running.

 

You can stop the Creators Update but still install security updates for the present version of Windows 10, see info here

 

You are welcome btw  :)
