Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

Unable to side load app, not enough space.

I am unable to side load my apps as the storage is full, but when I check what is using my storage, it claims that 55GB is being used as system files whereas my second hololens does not do this. Is there a way to fix this without formatting the hololens?



  • I know you are saying it is being used by system files but are there any unnecessary apps you can remove or if you go into the device portal and check the file explorer are there files you can remove there? Perhaps large videos?

    My hope is the reporting is wrong but if it is system files then I am unsure how to clear those without doing a reset.
