Windows 10 will reserve 7GB of your storage just for updates

However, the Reserved Storage feature is available for testing now. The latest release of Windows 10 19H1 is now available for users in the fast ring.

Moreover, Release Preview Windows Insiders are the only ones that will be able to test the "2019-01 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1809" as it appears in Windows Update.

In November of past year Microsoft's anti-piracy systems also accidentally disabled legitimate Windows 10 Pro systems. "Without reserved storage, if a user nearly fills up her or his storage, several Windows and application scenarios become unreliable", Microsoft explained in a blog post.

The amount of reserved space is not necessarily 7GB, and will change depending on the update itself.

Quarterback Jared Goff , who has 4,688 yards with 32 touchdowns for the year, will lead the Rams' offense. Anderson's second touchdown run made it 30-15 with 7:16 remaining.

Reserved Storage facilitates updates to existing applications, as well as OS updates. It's done by storing temporary installation files.

"When apps and system processes create temporary files, these files will automatically be placed into reserved storage". "Windows and application scenarios may not work as expected if they need free space to function". The new user interface will require less clicks / taps and should be more consistent with the overall theme, regardless of the device now in use. Similarly, installed languages that aren't needed on a Windows 10 PC can be deleted to reduce the space needed by Reserved Storage. You may be running low on disk space, or you just might like to remain in control of how your hard drive is used - in which case, read on to find out how to disable reserved storage.

Microsoft has also made general changes and improvements for the PC. It has also adopted other slimming measures. As a result of this fact you are probably going to feel a little constricted by this new update, although most people are probably going to appreciate the time that Microsoft will be saving them thanks to the 7 Gigabytes that has been set aside.

Many Windows 10 machines, such as laptops, have been equipped with relatively small solid-state drives as a cost-saving measure.
