Microsoft will be highlighting more options for that later on towards the final release. It's a new operating system release that perhaps will be arriving in April of this year. Being temporary, such files can be safely discarded each time an update is available to reinstate the full reserved capacity. The latest release of Windows 10 19H1 is now available for users in the fast ring.

Today, Microsoft has rolled out another build for the Windows Insider users in the Fast Ring. You don't need to set anything up - this process will automatically run in the background. "Innovation in silicon, innovation in graphics [and] Windows 10 momentum in terms of the install base". You must either buy a new device with 1903 already installed or do a clean install in order for reserved storage to work. Microsoft explains that you can reduce the size of reserved storage by reducing the number of Optional Features and languages you have installed.

The amount of reserved space is not necessarily 7GB, and will change depending on the update itself. It's done by storing temporary installation files. Files created for Windows updates are marked specially, allowing their space usage to be charged against the reservation rather than regular free space. Lowering it will still mean that update files will take up space outside of the reserved storage. Normally, Windows will shift all the temporary files to the reserved space.

After applying this cumulative update, the Windows 10 build number will change to 17763.288, as opposed to the 17763.134 OS build available to everyone else. It has also adopted other slimming measures.

Microsoft provided instructions for removing it from volume-licensed systems in a support document, and said it recommends the update be from volume-licensed systems even if they are not affected by the activation-failure flaw.

Many Windows 10 machines, such as laptops, have been equipped with relatively small solid-state drives as a cost-saving measure. Possibly, that's one reason why Microsoft has been taking these steps to slim its update payloads.

"Since disk space has been set aside for this goal, your device will function more reliably".
