Suddenly, Microsoft announced that it would use about 7 GB of hard disk space on the user to save the update files. The advantage of this approach is that it ensures that space does not end up in the middle of an update. The downside is banal – there's just not enough space for cheap tablets and laptops.
If the previous minimum storage requirement for Windows 10 was 16 GB for a 32-bit installation, then another 7 GB almost completely took up the entire disk. But now the situation will change even more.
The company has changed its hardware requirements. According to them, there is now a minimum of 32GB for 32 and 64-bit operating systems. This is enough to install updates on cheap devices. It also encourages hardware developers to increase the amount of internal memory on cheap devices.
Recall that Microsoft has previously updated the processor requirements page before the Windows update was released on May 10, 2019. Note that the list does not include the AMD Ryzen 3000 and Snapdragon 8cx processors, even if all other models are present, both x86- 64, so ARM. It is possible that this is only a typo or incomplete data that is subsequently corrected.
Also, we understand that the pre-release version of Windows on May 10, 2019, the update forcibly blocks the update if external SD drives are installed on your computer. As it turned out, the reason for this is incorrect reassignment of the drives.
