    Update KB5034441 fails to install


    Recently I clean installed Windows 10 a few days ago and ran each updates.
    The only update failed was: Update KB5034441 fails to install
    From the KB articles from various sources, that this is due to low space on the WinRE partition.
    "The WinRE partition requires 250 megabytes of free space. Devices which do not have sufficient free space will need to increase the size of the partition via manual action."

    But as I can see from the image posted, I have enough space.

    Should I even worry about this update at all or ignore it?

    Thanks.

    I am sorry - But I will NOT run any batch files or scripts on my PC. And its also blocked from running.
    Sorry to be paranoid, but I just will not run this.

    If you can provide other options, please do so.

    I am only sharing the manage-bde status:

    Unless you are using WIndows Bitlocker Drive encryption (mostly used by business and Government) you can safely ignore this update, as it is purely a fix for a bug in Bitlocker. If you do use it microsoft posted instructions on their website on how to do it. THIS IS RISKY HOWEVER as you are messing with your partitions and may lose data and or break windows so it will not boot. I have done it on my machines but only because I'd like the option to use it down the road if I end using one of them as a work from home device. Also from what I've read the update requires the Win RE partion to be at least 750mb. I've made mine 1GB as microsoft will not make this smaller as time goes by.

    Windows 'Disk Management' is known to misrepresent the Recovery Partition's disk usage value.

    A much better and comprehensive tool that's often recommended here is Mini Tool Partition Wizard Free:

    With this tool, all that needs to done is to resize the WinRE partition.
    Please post a screenshot if possible.

    Lots of people have worked and fixed this problem since it's release on Jan 9.

    @LesFerch has some good Mini Tool PW steps here:

    After 3 months since KB5034441 was released, it still won't install

    Okay, I am not going to mess with these partition tools as its very risky to do.
    I will leave as is and ignore it.

    Thanks anyways for all your help
