Next Windows 10 Release To Include 'Reserved Storage' Feature

New Windows Update Will Give Your DAW More Plug-ins

Typically those go without too much trouble, and that appears to the be the case on Windows 10. By now you are probably familiar with the various issues that affected the October Update for Windows 10, such as a file deletion bug that prompted Microsoft to pause the update's roll out. Files created for Windows updates are marked specially, allowing their space usage to be charged against the reservation rather than regular free space.

This isn't the first issue with Microsoft's anti-piracy Windows Activation Technologies, which recently caused panic after deactivating legitimate copies of Windows 10.

Even Microsoft was initially confused, before finally updating its known issues for the iffy update to insist that just because activation errors appeared to start happening just after the update was installed, it didn't mean that was the cause. "These events are not related".

Microsoft's new storage policy may have been aimed at ensuring there are fewer instances of failed updates. The new Windows 10 build 18312 which is now in preview, allows for just over 4000 FLS slots - that should do it.

After a long day of head-scratching, someone at Microsoft had a lightbulb moment and at 04:30 UTC on 9 January, the activation server change was reverted, fixing the issue for many.

The January monthly release of Windows patches includes fixes for serious security flaws, including a PowerShell flaw and mitigations for Meltdown and Spectre side-channel attacks.

But administrators reported that it also blocks some network shares using the SMBv2 file-sharing protocol.

Microsoft acknowledged the issue in the update's support page and provided a workaround for it while it works on a fix. This storage may increase based on the number of features you have enabled or the languages installed on your Windows PC. It can be found in the latest Windows Insider Program test release of Windows 10, which was announced on Wednesday.
