I would suspect that extra 10GB is "reserved storage"; it seems to be in the right ballpark for size -The attached jpeg shows one of the file sys problems I’ve encountered (why Win10 is using an extra 10gB on a USB drive concerns me, telemetry?)
Thanks Hippy, That sounds very likely. Hope it doesn’t reserve 10gB on a 16gB Flash drive (that could cause some comedy).I would suspect that extra 10GB is "reserved storage"; it seems to be in the right ballpark for size -
I don't know. If it's a bootable drive then it perhaps could. I recall it caused some problems with Win 10 systems and tablets that were using smaller SSD's.Hope it doesn’t reserve 10gB on a 16gB Flash drive (that could cause some comedy).
I've sworn off those ever since I picked up a Mini-PC with just 32GB and no DVD drive. After however many hours of it trying to update, it ended with a "something went wrong" error and just an "OK" button.
When I read broad-brush statements like that, it tells me more about the sender than the receiver. (Of course, not implying Hippy said it.)"The fear has always been that this meant Microsoft would start charging users a monthly fee to maintain the operating system, and now a new leak has confirmed this is exactly what will happen"
I'm gonna guess the file history service is enabled to keep previous versions of your files. It's a nice feature for having the capability to restore files that got accidently overwritten/corrupt/encrypted with ransomware, but sucks when you're already running low on disk space. Check the Control Panel / File History to see if it got enabled.(My hard drive has ~700gB left, so don’t know why Win10 needed to reserve 10gB on my little flash drives)
It seems most software is moving toward the subscription model. I see the possibility of Windows 10 becoming available "free of charge" but with advertisements. Or you can pay a monthly fee of $5-9 to remove the ads. Either way, MS wins with the telemetry.Anybody wanna' prognosticate? Might be fun to take a guess on the future.
Unfortunately it is not as simple as it sounds, and is even more complicated for a Raspberry Pi which is ARM-based, rather than X86.
