Don't know if this will help any of you, or if you are having the same problem. My Windows 10 computer, which I am about giving up on in favour of an Apple, has an SSD drive for my programs. Over the years this drive has got fuller and fuller although I was only running the same things as I always did. The red line had nearly reached the end. I had a message from Microsoft a few days ago saying there was not enough space for the new upgrade. Roy had a real go at it yesterday and found some software that gave him more information about what was on there. He found a load of files in Appdataroamingadobecommonmedia cache files. These added up to 35GB which was a lot of my SSD drive. Looking on the internet, these files can be deleted. They all appear to be a copy of things you do on Adobe. I have Photoshop. Apparently it is something that Adobe do but don't tell you about. Roy has deleted them and I have no problems. Windows have updated the software although I am not happy about the way that has changed things so am glad I am getting away from it when I can get all my stuff on the new Mac. Hope this helps somebody.

Hi Heathite, I know you've updated to say it's sorted now, but I've never been a fan of Adobe reader - it's a huge cumbersome programme and takes up a lot of space on your hard-drive, which has always puzzled me, as it's just a basic file reader! For the last few years I've always shunned Adobe and downloaded Sumatra PDF Reader instead. It's much quicker, free, and takes up a tiny fraction of the space. Here's a link to download it for you or anyone interested. Post copied from topic Wartime mystery scene on 23rd Nov 2020 9:06 pm

Libre Office seems ok. Hi Heathite, I don't know if this is the best alternative but it's free so it's worth a try. Other options at Money Saving Expert Edited by member, 28th Nov 2020 8:23 am

I've used Open Office for the past 5 years. The word processing and spreadsheets are compatible with Microsoft Office. It’s free.
