HP Pavilion

Hello! so I recived a pop-up message on my screen that told me I was very low on memory/storage. In the settings of my laptop, it says that my laptop is using 19.2 GB of storage for "Preload". What is Preload and why does 19.2 GB's of the 19.5  total GB's of used storage consist of it?
