Microsoft expects Windows 7’s demise to drive a wave of laptop upgrades

New Windows Update Will Give Your DAW More Plug-ins

With new languages installed on the device, Windows will adjust the amount of reserved storage to make sure these new languages are properly installed in your system. This is because of the fact that you might have to install a particular update that is coming your way, an update that would make it necessary for you to look into deleting unnecessary files and cleaning up disk space so that the update has a place where it can be installed.

Microsoft introduced this Storage Reserve (as it is also known) to "ensure proper performance and successful updates of your device", but not everyone is happy about it.

Microsoft has released Windows 10 19H1 (Windows 10 1903) release with support for reserved storage functionality.

Highly technical users who have hit this limit and want to test can use the Insider build on a non-critical PC to test it out. This is a security patch which addresses a number of flaws including a hole in PowerShell, an issue with the Microsoft Jet Database Engine, and a Windows DHCP client memory corruption vulnerability (plus gremlins in the works for Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, and more).

Top performances from Saturday's divisional-round games
Much will rely on how Philadelphia's defense does here, but Foles needs to keep his team in the game at the very least. Preventing that pair from getting to Andrew Luck will be pivotal if the Colts want to keep pace with the Chiefs .

But Microsoft has now confirmed that the activation issue was caused by a change made to its activation and validation servers, which also took effect on Tuesday. To do so, simply go to Settings Apps Apps & features Manage optional features.

The change was reverted the following day, but systems will remain affected until administrators remove an earlier update, KB971033. In October, for instance, Microsoft announced that it was dropping the delivery of print drivers with Windows 10 feature updates as a space-saving measure, starting with Windows 10 version 1809.

"When it's time for an update, the temporary unneeded OS files in the reserved storage will be deleted and update will use the full reserve area", Microsoft's announcement explained.

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