£Even on a 500 gig Laptop I have put in a 128 gig micro SD as a continuous back up. The built in slot is ideal. Does the OP’s Acer have such a slot I wonder?"
here's a slot for intel and a slot for a memory stick
is micro SD what I should be using? Transferring 5GB of suff to the memory stick has not made any difference to that fact that the (C:) disc space is completely full - I have a feeling I'm either not transferring it to thed memory stick or not deleting it from (C:) afer putting it on the memory stick

Before you reinstall Windows, back up your drivers -
click here best way, imo, to upgrade Windows 10, and to clean install, is to download Media Cereation Tool and then download Windows 10 Fall Creator update, from here - click here
Presumably, you have 32-bit so select the 32-bit version. Follow instructions etc.
If you put the drivers onto the same USB stick, after downloading Win 10, you should find they are loaded automatically during the installation.
