As part of the lessons learned from the damage done to many users when you install the latest update to the Windows 10 operating system, Microsoft (Microsoft) has announced a “renewal” that will take effect as of the next update to the operating system. Starting with this update, 7 GB of free space will be required, which the operating system will refer to as “cached” for installing updates and for Windows 10 to run properly.
Microsoft explains that temporary files that are required for the update to be installed as well as for Windows 10’s collaborative activities and installed software will be stored within the same cache that is set by the operating system. Clearing and defining this space will do automatically and gradually for all users. In case there is not enough free space on the drive, the update will probably not be installed, but the operating system will continue to operate normally.
For users using desktops, the requirement for an additional 7 gigabytes needed for the operating system is not a big problem. Laptop users with low volume SSDs, on the other hand, may suddenly find that their available storage space has suddenly shrunk. Microsoft, for its part, claims to have been able to reduce the volume of files required for the latest Windows 10 operating system, and therefore the overall change is not dramatic.
