I have pro running on a vm with limited disk space. When I tried updating this morning, the update didn't finish because of an "out of space" error. I canceled the install and in the process my machine lost over 2.5 GB of space. I was thinking this might be an issue for this machine so I checked storage space before I started.

Where would've ArcPro saved any files that were downloaded?

No. I can't get anymore either.

Do you have options to free up some disk space other than what you are asking about here?

If disk space is already that tight even Microsoft updates will begin failing too.

And as C: goes to zero for any reason you might not be able to login to the vm at all without adding some free space.

yes I am freeing up space and would love to get rid of this 2.5+ GB.

I don't know if this is true or if the files are still hiding somewhere but a restart of the vm might have emptied out some stuff.
