Why System Partition Gets Full after Windows 8 Upgrade?
It is a common situation that system partition might be full after Windows 8 upgrading. Here are some possible reasons:
1. After installing Windows operating system on your PC, you may need to download and install some programs on your computer. Usually, Windows system installs all programs on system partition by default. Therefore, the available space on system partition will be occupied after installing too many programs on it.
2. Sometimes, when you install some application which is used to record or edit videos, it will automatically produce a folder in C drive to save the video files.
3. Some anti-virus software will occupy several MB or GB space on C drive to save some suspicious files.
4. Internet temporary files, log files, recycle bin files, etc will also occupy free space on system partition.

Free to Extend System Partition When It Is Full due to Windows 8 Upgrade
If system partition still does not have enough free space after trying all common solutions above, you can resolve the C drive low disk space issue thoroughly by extending its size. You can use Windows built-in Disk Management to perform partition resizing in order to extend C drive after upgrading Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 or Windows 10. Both Windows 8 Disk Management and Windows 10 Disk Management allow users to redistribute disk space easily within a few steps.
Step1. You can run Disk Management on your PC and then shrink a partition that has enough free space so that you can produce an unallocated partition on your computer.
Step2. After getting unallocated space, you can add it to system partition so as to extend its size.
Pay attention:
You cannot add the unallocated space to system partition when there is other partition showing between the C drive and unallocated partition. However, when you shrink any partition under Disk Management, the unallocated partition cannot be contiguous to the C drive. In order to produce contiguous unallocated space to C drive by using Disk Management, the only method is to delete the D drive.
