After more than six months of testing, Microsoft’s first major release of Windows 10 in 2019 is almost ready for a global roll-out. And as the name suggests, the roll-out of Windows 10 May 2019 Update will be starting from the month May.

In the interest of having a smooth roll-out, Microsoft has already started to notify users about the dos and don’ts while updating to the latest operating system. Adding another item to the list of dos and don’ts, Microsoft today has announced that Windows 10 May 2019 update and its subsequent releases will require at least 32GB of storage space for 32-bit or greater version of the O.S.

Previously, Microsoft needed only 16GB of storage space to install the 32-bit version of Windows 10 on your PC, while the 64-bit version needed 20GB of storage space.

If your PC is running out of storage then you should definitely check whether your internal storage has the minimum space which is now 32GB to install the upcoming major Windows 10 system updates. Microsoft, however, didn’t share any info as to why there was a need to increase the required storage space.
