Microsoft: Windows 10 to grab 7GB of your storage so big updates don't fail

In the next major release of Windows 10, Microsoft will reserve 7GB of your device's storage to resolve a Windows 10 bug thrown up by Windows Update not checking whether a PC has enough storage space before launching after big updates.

That happens because Windows doesn't check if a device has enough space before initializing. Microsoft's current solution is for users to manually delete unnecessary temporary files and temporarily move important files like photos and videos to external storage devices to make enough space for the update.

Microsoft estimates that reserved storage will start at about 7GB, but notes it could need more depending on how a device is used.

So Microsoft basically admits that they are unable to figure out before trying to update if enough free space is available? Really now? Plus, they call this a bugfix?
