When its time to upgrade to the Windows 10 May 2019 Update, you'll need to have a little more storage space available than previous Windows 10 feature updates. In its official list of minimum requirements for the upcoming update, Microsoft says that it will require 32GB of hard drive space, which is up from the previously required 20GB (via OnMSFT).
The minimum requirement applies to both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS. Previously, Windows 10 version 1809 and prior required 20GB of 64-bit versions and 16GB for 32-bit versions. It's unclear why Microsoft has raised the minimum storage space required, but it shouldn't have a noticeable impact unless you're using a vast majority of your hard drive space already.
The Windows 10 May 2019 Update is expected to launch, as the name suggests, in May. However, it's currently available to Insiders through the Release Preview and Slow rings.
