Microsoft has announced that previews of its next major upgrade to Windows 10 will soon be released to users in the insider program. Among the upcoming features, one that stands out is called Reserved Space.
Windows 10 Becomes Bigger and Bigger
Windows 10 is a very large operating system that seems to be getting fatter with each major update, which is something that happens twice a year. During the early months of Windows 10, when Microsoft offered free upgrades to millions of users around the world, hard drive space became an issue for older desktops and laptops. Since running low on storage can affect operating system performance, Microsoft’s decision to introduce the Windows 10 Reserved Space feature makes sense; however, it is expected to take up as much as 7 GB of space.
How to Free Up Space for Windows Updates
From the Settings section of the Windows Start Menu, you can select Apps followed by Optional Features to delete things you are not really using and have no intentions of using in the future. You can also apply a similar strategy by visiting the Time and Region section of the Settings menu, where you can delete unused language packs.
