    I have wp 8.1 preview for developers and today i received a notification about the new 8.1 update but when i tried to install it there wasn't enough storage, it needs 860 MB.
    So i deleted everything that can be deleted, even the other storage but the best i could come up with was 550 MB.
    If i reset my phone would i have to reinstall every single update since the day i bought my phone (2 years ago) or just the latest update ?

    It is possible yes but I believe it will go straight to the DevPrev8.1 update. In all honesty, it is only one way to find out. You can backup all of your items and restore from backup afterwards.

    No when you hard reset your phone you will wipe all the data you put onto the device and not the O/S, I would say best back up your documents, photos etc onto a PC or what ever you use and create a cloud back up manually via settings - back up - apps & settings - back up now.

    However when you restore after installing the update you will lose any apps or games that have been pulled from the store *as they are re-installed directly from the store itself) along with app / game data that do not utilise onedrive for cloud saves.

    No a hard reset doesn't wipe the O/S unless you force flash say portico on to your device then you would need to go through all the updates if they are not packaged into one push (most likely they won't be given the timescale between the updates).
