        If you have a new laptop or have recently installed Win 10 or reinstalled you may find that you have very little disk space to play with.

        Microsoft have decided to reserve about 7GB called ‘Reserved Storage’

        But many computers are running without it and it is easy to disable. I now have 10GB free on my 29GB T100TA but this should work for anyone.

        Open an elevated command prompt and type

        DISM /Online /Set-ReservedStorageState /State:Disabled

        to reverse

        DISM /Online /Set-ReservedStorageState /State:Enabled

        no downsides so far.

        So the source of this information is where? (since you have quoted everything)
        Many posts get trashed due to being from undisclosed sources aka ‘scraping’ which is against the askwoody rules

        Please add your source, thank you.

        Here is one source https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/124858-enable-disable-reserved-storage-windows-10-a.html

        It was pasted from my own document but the idea was from a Google search.  So the words are my own.
