    1903 Reserved Storage - gone after KB4503293?

    Hi guys,

    I raised the issue (ie: I don't like it!) of the ~7GB reserved storage 'feature' of 1903 in another thread and initially investigated how to disable it. However, I noticed that the reserved space takes up pretty much zero space when creating a backup image file of my system disk, so I thought I'd let the issue slide.

    However, I noticed that after the KB4503293 update (yesterday) the Reserved Storage space has gone! Free disk space has increase by 7GB and when I look at Settings>System>Storage, the previous 7.08GB of reserved space is no longer there.

    I've done nothing else to try and remove Reserved Storage, other than the registry tweak, which sets the ShippedWithReserves key to zero (0).

    Has anyone else noticed this issue?

    Yes, installing any cumulative update, after applying the tweak, disables it.
