  • Windows 10 19H1

Windows 10 users with Build 18298 now have the option to try out this feature. The latest release of Windows 10 19H1 is now available for users in the fast ring. The reserved storage functionality is an attempt by the company to solve the woes arising out of the installation.

Microsoft has committed to upgrading Windows 10 twice a year, and to make those roll outs go smoother, the next version is going to earmark around 7GB of storage space for future updates, apps, temporary files, and system caches on some PCs. On that note, Windows is increasing the max per process Fiber Local Storage (FLS) slot allocation, effectively removing the cap on the number of unique plugins musicians can load in their DAW projects.

Users can gain space back from Reserved Storage by checking to see if they are using so-called "optional features", which are applications that may have been preinstalled on a PC. Files created by Windows updates that are marked specially, allowing them to be used, the reserved space instead of redundancy, but not at the expense of ordinary space. 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. You can not totally remove the reserved storage but it is possible to reduce the size of the storage. "Storage sense will automatically remove unneeded temporary files, but if for some reason your reserve area fills up Windows will continue to operate as expected while temporarily consuming some disk space outside of the reserve if it is temporarily full", it added. Similarly, installed languages that aren't needed on a Windows 10 PC can be deleted to reduce the space needed by Reserved Storage. 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. The good news here is that Microsoft is working on a fix and will provide an update when it's available.

Just how much space Windows 10 sets aside varies quite a bit from one computer to another.
