Hi there and welcome

You need to free this space up on the C drive on the Aspire, connect a drive does not do this.

Can you move all your photos and videos to the WD drive, and once done, press the windows key + E

Then click on this PC, then right click on C drive and see if you now have 20GB of available space.

Let me know please how you go.

I did as you suggested, and have insufficient space. Windows 10 Installer does not recognize free space anywhere other than the C: drive.
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

yes, this is what I indicated in my initial message, you need to clear up 20GB from the C drive.

How much have you done so far?
