What is Reserve Space and how do I clear it?

Reserve Space

On Xbox, there is a reserved storage space for game modification downloads.

It is part of good maintenance to clear this space and re-download mods every so often to avoid bloat in the event a mod gets renamed or if you are starting a new game.

This is not the same reserved space used for saves files. While online, saves are automatically synced with your Xbox account. Clearing this reserve will not delete any saves on the cloud and when you load Fallout 4, they will be re-synced and show up under your saves in the menu.
