Microsoft will reduce the size of updates to Windows 10 by 35%
In November last year, Microsoft introduced a new management system updates Unified Update Platform for Windows 10. It is designed for all supported devices, including personal computers, smartphones, consoles, IOT, and the HoloLens. The essence of Unified Update Platform is to reduce the size of the system updates. All this time the system was only available to participants of the program Windows Insiders, but now Microsoft has announced that the UUP will work on all devices with the release of a massive upgrade Creators Update later this spring.
Reducing the size of the updates is carried out thanks to the functions of differential load packages. In other words, the system loads only what you really need, removing all unnecessary files. Before downloading updates scans all existing files on the device, then they are used to restore the new version.
Creators Update will become a major update, but the size of all subsequent will be reduced by 35%. In the case of members of the Windows Insiders algorithm works more efficiently because they get update much more often.
