Once, Microsoft announced that it would use about 7 GB of space on the user's hard drive to store update files. The advantage of this approach is that it ensures that the space does not end in the middle of the update. The downside is trite – there simply is not enough space on low-cost tablets and laptops.
If the minimum storage requirement in Windows 10 was previously 16 GB for a 32-bit installation, the additional 7 GB would occupy almost completely the entire drive. But now the situation will change even more.
The company changed the hardware requirements. According to them, now the minimum amount of space under the OS is 32GB for the 32- and 64-bit versions. So, this is enough to install updates on cheap devices. It also encourages hardware developers to increase the amount of internal memory on low-cost devices.
Please note that Microsoft has previously updated the processor requirements page prior to the release of the Windows Update May 10, 2019. Note that the list does not include AMD Ryzen 3000 and Snapdragon 8cx processors, although all other models, both x86-64 and ARM, are present. This may be just a typo or incomplete data, which is fixed.
We also remind you that the pre-release version of Windows 10 May 2019 Update forcibly blocks the update if there are external SD drives on the PC where it is installed. As it turned out, the reason is the incorrect reassignment of disks.
