Next Windows 10 update reserves space on your hard drive

Reset My PC in Windows 10

After installing this patch, as MSPoweruser reports, some folks have hit network issues, or problems with applications working - including Windows Hello failing - along with a dreaded Blue Screen of Death issue reported by one denizen of Twitter.

In addition to the storage feature, the Windows 10 19H1 also ships with an improved user interface for the reset of PC.

With reserved storage, Microsoft explains that the update files will have pre-allocated space where they are stored.

The issue appeared at the same time as another bug that blocks administrator access to remote shares on Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7. 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.

Machines affected by the issue display a "Windows is not genuine" error message after the user logs on and have a "This copy of Windows is not genuine" watermark on the desktop.

In the meantime, Microsoft used the two rings to test cumulative updates before they are publicly released to all users, so there's a chance this is the case today too. "These events are not related".

The devices that get upgraded to [Windows 10 version] 1903 the regular way of updating via Windows Update when 1903 becomes available there (and NOT via a clean install) will not get the reserved storage feature. Microsoft would still very much like enterprise users to uninstall the Jiminy Cricket update (aka KB971033) because it is aimed at consumers. It also fixes a number of bugs and flaws in Microsoft's most popular operating system at the moment.

Microsoft acknowledged the issue in the update's support page and provided a workaround for it while it works on a fix. The reserved storage cannot be removed from the OS, but you can reduce the amount of space reserved.

So we should hear more on the latter soon enough, then, and hopefully Microsoft is now investigating these reports of other issues.
