    Hello

    With the 1903, it is possible to delete the 7GB "reserved storage" ?

    This tweak does not work with the 18362

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ReserveManager]
    "ShippedWithReserves"=dword:00000000

    Thanks

    That tweak only works for upgrading. By the way, thanks for the info, I assumed, that disabling storage senses takes cares of this nonsense, obviously not. I was wondering, why my system partition takes 19GB instead of 12GB. :annoyed:

    You need to set the Registry key. It will then be disabled on next upgrade. Enabling needs an upgrade, too.

    I guess you can do an inplace upgrade using the same version, not need for a new one.

    It should only work when you offline set the regkey, before you install the OS.

    I'd just update to 18362.1. Is it possible to disable it?

    Thanks

    works great btw, but I might add this is the biggest crappiest feature ms ever came up with IMO, imagine all the people wondering where their drive space went, precious space, lol

    It's probably meant for people on 32GB emmc sd drives, many manufactureres like lenovo stopped selling tablets with 32GB and now sell them with 64GB.

    My wife's laptablet has a 32GB edition and the first bi-annual upgrades couldn't be performed, i had to resetpc it to free enough space to perform the upgrade, later on it asked to point to another drive (sd card) to use for the upgrade.

    With this new feature it should preserve enough free space to be used for the upgrade process, to ensure it runs smoothly.

    This option would be much better, if it were "enabled" for low capacity drives :D

    People on larger drives should not get so upset about just 7GB;)

    Is 7gb the default storage amount for build 1903? Or was that an assumption?

    The size can vary.

    It's the amount of space UUP and ESD needs to be prepared for upgrade.

    With the 7GB hdd space preservation enabled:
    Code:
    Capacity Data              : Total: 63 GB , Avail: 44 GB {69,84%} - Approx Values.
    With the 7GB hdd space preservation disabled:
    Code:
    Capacity Data              : Total: 63 GB , Avail: 51 GB {80,95%} - Approx Values.
    Working, exactly 7GB difference between them :D

    I don't care how useful it is. It's stupid if MS doesn't let users turn it off with a menu option

    I agree 100%, I want all my space back, like any other previous 10 edition, I had to import the reg setting offline in order to bypass this so called feature

    I'd applied the registry method to disable it and it didn't worked :/
