  1. Storage reserved for Windows Update


    I've read that after the April (May?) update, Windows10 will reserve 7 GB of storage for installing updates. Can this possibly be true? I only have 8 GB.

    Why some unaccesible space is reserved in a storage?

    Much like qubit said, for powers of 2, yes. But lately you are seeing SSD's with 120GB or 240 GB capacity, etc. They are automatically reserving the extra space, so a 240GB SSD now has the same storage space as one listed as 256. They've just set aside 16GB for wear levelling, etc.
