In two weeks' time, Microsoft's Win11 system will be released, which officials have been stressing is the most revolutionary system upgrade in recent years. In addition to known interface changes, Win11 optimizes performance, reduces memory and CPU footprint, and now Microsoft has revealed that Win11 also reduces disk space.
For the system disk occupation problem, we all know that win system is easy to use more and more space problems, C disk space is not enough to easily burst, some are third-party software problems, some are Win system problems.
Microsoft changed the disk space allocation mechanism for some of its own apps on Win11, improving the compression technology of operating systems and applications, such as notes, Microsoft To Do and other applications are actually indexes that users download when they use them.
According to Microsoft, if the user opens the note app for the first time, the first thing they see is the loading interface, other application binaries will load on demand, Microsoft said this reduces disk usage, users will also see less background updates and download traffic.
In addition to the built-in applications, Microsoft has reduced the disk footprint of Win11 and Edge browsers, where Ethernet and Wi-Fi drivers are now FOD on demand.
These drivers are installed by default, but users can manually remove them from the settings if they are not needed.
However, Microsoft did not mention how much hard disk space these changes can save, from the author upgrade Win11 to do mice, the actual use of the occupation and Win10 almost no difference, after all, the main occupation or a variety of third-party software, the system itself reduced space is limited.
