The Windows 10 2019 May update is all set to get released and reach the world slowly and steadily. The Window 10 2019 May update is also known by the name of windows 10 version 1903. In the light of the release of the Windows 10 May 2019 update, Microsoft has set forward the minimum storage requirement that is essential to get the update. Microsoft has stated that the lowest storage requirement for Windows 10 1903 update is set at 32 GB for both the 32-bit as well as for the 63-bit windows. However, earlier the minimum requirement that was set by Microsoft was 16 GB for 32-bit Windows 10 and 20 GB for the 64-bit Windows 10.

However, the update page of Microsoft has failed to contain any information regarding the reasons behind the changes made by Microsoft. It is very unclear as to why Microsoft made the decision of raising the minimum required storage space, but this change is deemed to have a noticeable impact until and unless a user is using a vast majority of his/her hard drive space already.

Microsoft has further listed that Windows 10 loT enterprise has decided to keep 16 GB as the minimum storage requirement for 32-bit windows and a 32 GB minimum storage requirement for 64-bit windows.

Though the change in the minimum storage requirement is a fair jump but it is not likely to affect too many people as the majority of users are most likely to opt for storage which is more than 32 GB. But this decision on minimum storage requirement shall restrict the manufacturers from carrying out several low-rate offerings.

For the desktop software that are running on Windows 10, there are certain conditions that are related to the RAM and the processor. The laptops are deemed to have more than or equal to 1GB of RAM for 32 -bit windows and equal to or more than 2 GB RAM for 6 -bit windows.
