    I don't have this. And I'm not sure what advantage this would give over the old system?
    "Old system" is making sure you have enough free space. this one takes that "pleasure" away.

    To get Reserved Storage, you had to set a registry entry before upgrading to a new build. I can't remember where I found the article about it. You set the entry, and upon upgrading to a new build, Reserved Storage is implemented. Weird, I know, but there it is.
    I read that, but still have not heard a single compelling reason to do it...

    It is so nice to see my lock screen instead of a blurry mess! Thanks, @Brink (Shawn)
    When will M$ learn to give people the ability to turn things like that on or off, and not just them changing it in an update or not? We should be able to customize every single thing on this system. The more delicate things should be harder to change, but still customizable for those knowledgeable enough to do it. People want choices. But M$ is a control freak...

    That "feature" might have been an accident or byproduct, there's no use for it. you could just make it same as single colored background or black.
    One of the reasons it is so annoying is that there is a setting to show the Lock Screen background picture on the Sign In screen which is pointless if you are then going to blur it out. Left hand/ right hand.

    It reserves space so that there is always enough space on your system partition to upgrade to the next build so only useful if your system partition is small and being filled up.

    Holy Cow! I must be blind...I'm still on build 18309. Offline phase does absolutely nothing for me. It does not even start, computer just reboots normally. Last time I had this issue I could only solve it by clean installing Windows.

    It just does NOT work!
    Yep, that happened to me on both my desktop and my Lenovo Flex 4, Slice. I just opened Settings and clicked on Restart and away it went.

    Other than "She no worky"? Nope! I still get the splash screen that sits on my desktop, then nothing.

    Well, I figured out what is going on, and it is really pretty unbelievable.

    It seems that if you have any partitions on the drive that contains the C: partition that are formatted, but not formatted to NTFS (e.g., Linux partitions formatted ext4), the space in those partitions is folded into the number reported for C:! Unallocated space is NOT reported as part of C:, only non-NTFS formatted partitions.

    I have tested this with 3 different Windows installations, and that's what sure seems to be going on. The final test was to delete a Linux partition, and sure enough the space reported changed accordingly.

    I don't know when this issue began - in any case it exists in 17763 from the beginning, and all subsequent Insiders builds. I suspect it goes way back to the beginning of the settings/storage feature. In any case, it's not just an Insiders thing - it's production code.

    Just plain shoddy coding.

    The Settings/Storage issue that I reported with 18309 still exists. (Note: Drive C: is 96 GB)

    Does anyone else have this issue? Any clue what's going on?

    Edited to add: When I click 'show more categories' I get this:

    Disasters can and will happen no matter what. I think it's aimed for small devices with little storage. Windows will complain long time before 7GB is actually reached. I continually end up with windows.old at over 25GB (last one was 28.5GB) than there's 3.7GB download and SxS that can reach quite high numbers. Noticed that C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download was emptied out during first phases of installation but haven't checked Temp and SxS folders. Hope I'll remember to check those at next build that should save some space.
    Exactly! I have 131GB free on my system drive, and that is with a 26.8GB Windows.Old folder still there. So I see no reason to do this at all. Of course this reminds me to do a disk cleanup to get rid of that folder.

    Yeah! I made the mistake of clicking on it after the update, I got a very loud noise and a frozen system. Won't do that again. Of course it worked perfectly well on my last build. Lol. M$ loves to introduce new features, and then obliterate them in the next update.
