    Ah, so the reserved space by portable baselayer is already taken even before enabling Sandbox I assume?
    Hard to say. I think so, but before it was probably fully hidden how it worked.

    I noticed a virtual drive in Disk Management called "PortableBaseLayer" that appeared ever since I have enabled Windows Sandbox. It takes up 8 GB.
    However, this virtual drive does not go away after disabling Sandbox and still takes up 8 GB. I am using Windows 1909.

    Anyone else experiencing this? How do I solve this?
    >> The simple /safe way to remove this is to DISABLE in Windows options ( Control Panel > Programs and Features > Turn Windows Features On and Off > remove (uncheck) all that has to do with Hypervisor, Virtual Drive, Sandbox AND Microsoft Defender Application Guardian
    After disabling, reboot and voila! gone .. Virtual Drive stays after disabling
