SSD wont boot because there is no space left

  Marjetica 17:17 25 Aug 2019

I Just came back from vacation and my PC wont start up. It Just sends me to bios. I noticed my SSD was completley full, maybe because when i left Windows did an update despite my SSD was almost full. When i go to bios and to Asus ez flash 2 utility it detects my normal disk (where i have my stuff) and SSD ( where i have my Windows). It says that all the files are on there,so i Guess that my SSD works fine. Does any 1 know how to fix this withaut doing a full reinstal since i also have some important files on my SSD. Ty.

what error message comes up?

put the ssd in a caddy or connect directly to another PC and remove some of the files (not windows files) to make space.

Then see if it will boot

On a second inspection i noticed that my SSD is probably not being detected. When i boot,just before it forces me inside of bios,it says Adapter:1 disk Information:AHCI mode
and below this port 0: SATA: WDC (some numbers) 640 GB 3gb/s Port 1: SATA:sandisk milpitas SSD 0 MB 3 GB/s what does this mean?

I would be tempted to take a short cut.

Remove the SSD > Connect it to another PC > Transfer a load of files to another Hard Drive > Stick it back and see what happens

Marjetica, next time you have access to another pc, follow wee eddie's advice. For next this happens, while you're at it, download and burn a live Linux desktop ISO image.

You can boot off that to rescue any files if your system becomes otherwise unable to boot.
