The upcoming Windows 10 update will automatically create 7GB of reserved space in order to make sure that the performance of apps and the system as a whole is not affected by the paucity of free disk space.
Having gone through what can only be described as quite a mess when it came to last year's October Update, Microsoft's storage segregation will aim to ensure that updates install more reliably.
Microsoft has released new monthly rollup for Windows 7 and 8.1 on Patch Tuesday, along with the security-only updates that these OS versions with every rollout. Soon, it seems that the next major Windows 10 release will bring a "reserved storage" feature that will take away 7 GB of storage space to avoid failing updates due to a bug in the operating system that has been around for a while.More news: Mysterious radio signals from deep space detected
Windows now does not check to see whether a user has enough space on their device before beginning an update. Through reserved storage, some disk space will be set aside to be used by updates, apps, temporary files, and system caches. To try it out though, you will need to run through this quest which will give you access to it in the next flight. Microsoft says the feature will initially use 7GB for the reserved storage, though that may change in the future. This build greatly raises that per-process FLS slot allocation ceiling, allowing loading potentially thousands of unique plugins. (If you do the quest before installing Build 18312 - reserved storage should kick off for this flight.) For more details on reserved storage coming in 19H1, read this blog post here. Beyond musicians, this change will positively impact any application that dynamically loads hundreds or thousands of unique DLLs that have statically-linked Visual C++ runtimes, or otherwise allocate FLS slots. The same refinements are part of the security-only update as well. As you can see in the above GIF, the new UI offers a more consistent experience.
Consolidated command line options - The wsl command line tool now includes options to manage your WSL distros that are included in the wslconfig command line tool.
The company isn't alone in this approach, however: Most Linux distributions reserve around five percent of the overall storage capacity for use exclusively by the root user, equivalent to Windows' administrator accounts, to prevent the system crashing due to an unprivileged user filling a drive to capacity - though this can be adjusted or removed altogether if desired.More news: U.S. and China wrap up trade talks in Beijing.

Export your WSL distribution for simpler environment management - Use the "-export" option to export a distribution to a tar file.
Other patches included fixes for a pair of vulnerabilities in Microsoft Edge, ensuring the browser is now immune to an elevation of privilege issue, and a memory corruption problem which could allow an attacker to remotely execute malicious code. Your distro will export to your default downloads location.More news: Nokia 8.1 Is Coming To Malaysia This Month for RM 1699
