Hello everyone. Can someone describe all functions of WOA Deployer app? Basics like from Deployment and Dual Boot tabs are easy. But what about Advanced tab? Can someone share the instruction?

Use Compact Deployment: will enable NTFS compression for a smaller deploy size.
Clean Downloaded folder before deployment: Deletes cached driver and other files and redownloads them.
Space allocation: Dropdown allows you to keep W10M or remove it. If you want to keep it, the slider shows how much space to take from Data partition to allocate to WOA.
Big buttons in the middle are for backing up and restoring your WOA install partition (just in case everything falls apart).
Smaller buttons on the bottom are really advanced stuff. They're also fairly self-explanatory.

So, the size to reserve for Windows option says how much of the 32GB internal storage minus OS partition or what ever can be used? For me the slider goes to 24. But, what if there is less than 24GB free space available in the internal storage and one chooses 24 anyways?

The default is 18GB but I am regretting not increasing it to at least 20GB. I have barely any apps installed and running out of room already. My very first attempted instal failed on the Lumia 950XL. On reflection, it could have failed for the reason that there was less than 18 GB available on the disk. I had to flash W10M a number of times so the original W10M is no longer and there seems to be plenty of room for W10M especially if you primarily use an SD card to instal W10M apps. My recommendation would be to extend 18GB to at lease 20GB so you can instal a few programs and apps without hitting storgage issues.
