It can also be a problem on slow or limited channels because you download you need at least 2,86 GB for the installation files.

As noted, when you reinstall the OS this way will be downloaded the same version that is on the computer. While this option is available only through Insider program, 18970, in the release it will be, obviously, not earlier than spring of next year.
