How to disable reserved storage in Windows 10

  • Windows 10 Insider Build 18312

You cannot make Windows not reserve space for the update, but you can control to an extent the amount of space reserved for the update.

The problem affected volume-licensed Windows 7 PCs that use Microsoft's Key Management Service and that had the KB 971033 update installed.

Finally, Microsoft has improved the Windows Subsystem for Linux Command Line Tool, making it easier to manage WSL.

The 7GB space allocation will take effect with a new "Reserved Storage" feature that's coming in Windows 10 version 1903, according to a Microsoft announcement this week.

Besides the two fixes detailed in the changelog, as noticed by some users, the 2019-01 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1809 also patches an issue which causes the notifications in the Action Center to disappear when the icon is clicked faster than normal.

Windows 10 cumulative update KB4476976 is now available for download for devices running preview builds as part of the Release Preview ring, and it increases the OS build number to 17763.288.


"When apps and system processes create temporary files, these files will automatically be placed into reserved storage".

In a new update for Windows 10 (build 18312) preview - soon to be released.

The exact amount reserved will depend on the optional features and language packs installed, but about 7GB will be typical. This is especially important for devices with limited storage space, and have nearly all of them used up. This 7GB space will be used for the goal of the installation of updates in the future. 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.

The storage reservation is to ensure that certain critical operations-most significantly, installing feature updates-always have enough free space available.

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