As highlighted by Microsoft earlier this week, the reserved storage refers to a certain amount of space that has been allotted to the system to download the necessary update files. The reserved disk space will help Microsoft ensure that all Windows 10 devices can seamlessly upgrade to the new release.

In October 2018 Update or older, the Windows Update may fail if there’s not enough space. In the 19H1 update, the reserved storage will allow Windows 10 to properly execute the update process.
