Future version of Windows 10 will reserve system space for updates

New Windows Update Will Give Your DAW More Plug-ins

Windows 10 Insider Build 18312

In a new low, Microsoft has announced that it will soon reserve more than 7GB of your storage just for the upcoming updates. Going forward, laptops with a preinstalled version of Windows 10 19H1 will ship with reserved storage feature by default without any need to install the update. "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.

Availability of Reserved Storage Feature Current Windows 10 users will only get the Reserved Storage feature if their systems get "clean installed" to Windows 10 version 1903.

This is a huge hassle, and it seems like Microsoft is acknowledging this because of the fact that there are so many different people out there that are criticizing Windows for this very reason.

It will also be used to store temporary files by other important Windows apps and systems, and Windows will remove these files when they are no longer necessary.

The firm says that KB 971033, an old update, should not have been installed by "an Enterprise customer who uses Key Management Service (KMS) or Multiple Activation Key (MAK) volume activation", as it was "targeted at consumer installs of Windows using retail activation".

Australia considering resettlement for runaway Saudi woman
She used a Canadian tourist's phone to send a message , a video of which was posted to Twitter , saying her family would kill her. When she refused and appealed to Thai immigration officials , she was escorted to a transit hotel.


Microsoft will reserve 7GB of storage space for this goal, although this figure will vary in the future. 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. The reserved space isn't entirely lost during normal usage, with certain temporary files having their disk usage charged against reserved space rather than free space.

What are your thoughts regarding this reserved storage feature?

But Microsoft has now confirmed that the activation issue was caused by a change made to its activation and validation servers, which also took effect on Tuesday.

A "feature update", which upgrades the operating system and arrives twice per year, can require "6GB-11GB or more of free space", according to a Microsoft support article.
