    Now that really looks like an update designed especially to support an 1809 rollout

    I agree, but I haven't seen it yet in Windows Update. I was wondering if the Insiders were seeing installs which were doing something like this. I think a couple of folks said the latest build took a little longer to install.

    Personally, I would rather a popup message warning me I needed more space on my drive than quietly compressing files without my knowledge.

    The last update did not require a reboot, so possibly it set a registry entry to be used for future updates?

    Nothing going on with the latest 19H1 Insider builds today except a Defender Update.
    As far as I know, even the slowest Insider Build (Release Preview Ring) is an 1809 Version, which I expect to go to the 19H1 builds after the Bug Bash in January.
    Looks like that update applies to 1803 Versions or older.

    I would expect the future builds to have this built in or at least it being added, thus the question about install observations regarding the newest Insider builds.

    But I suppose it does not really make a difference..

    I saw this file compression actually happening on a system over on the Microsoft forum. The OP stated he needed the files which were being compressed and had to decompress them every time he booted up.

    Of course it was found he had a 128 GB SSD and only had 10 GBs free.

    There are some threads and even a sticky on the Microsoft site about this update. The response marked as an answer is to hide that update. The error code just means there was a fatal error during installation.
