How to Enable Reserved Storage in Windows 10?

Hi All,

Yesterday I upgraded my PC to Windows 10 version 1909 from Windows 10 version 1809. Now I have been testing all the Windows 10 version 1909 new features. Microsoft released on feature called Reserved Storage in Windows 10 version 1903. Since I am in Windows 10 version 1909 I am not seeing this feature in the Storage setting. For your reference please check the below image.

Hi @Reginald,

I am getting error: 87 while running the code DISM /Online /Get-ReservedStorageState

please guide

Hi @Reginald & @Evans,

This DISM command has introduced in the Windows 10 version 2004. I assume you are using either Windows 10 version 1903 or Windows 10 version 1909. @Evans this is the reason you are getting the error: 87 in your PC

Thank you so much my friend.
