Windows 10 19H1 Build 18312 Brings Reserved Storage, More

Posted on January 9, 2019 by Mehedi Hassan in Windows, Windows 10 with 10 Comments

Microsoft is rolling out a minor new Windows 10 build to Insiders in the Fast Ring. Build 18312 is rolling out to Insiders today, with a number of new features and bug fixes.

The build introduces Reserved Storage, which is a new system in Windows that reserves 7GB of your device’s storage space for seamless Windows Updates. The feature will be automatically in effect on PCs that come with Windows 10 build 19H1 pre-installed or where 19H1 was clean installed, so you won’t be able to use the feature just by updating your device to the new build. However, you can finish this Windows Insider quest before installing build 18312 to get the feature right away after you upgrade.

Microsoft is also improving the “Reset this PC” UI in Windows 10 that makes the experience more consistent across all devices and reduces the number of clicks required to complete the process. The build also comes with an increase to the Fiber Local Storage slot limit, which apparently prevented music producers from loading as many plugins as they want into their DAWs.

The latest build comes with some improvements to the Windows Subsystem for Linux, and a bunch of bug fixes. You can find the full changelog here.
