Microsoft Postpones Windows 10 Ability to Install Apps on SD

And surprise! This one actually has a new feature that was previously announced and presumed forgotten.

And that is news in its own right: Microsoft has, after all, delivered several Redstone 5 builds in recent weeks that have included absolutely no new features. And the assumption was that any one of them could have been what we’d previously had called a release candidate.

Adding features this late in the game is, of course, not good form. But whatever.

“We’re adding a new capability and making a few changes to Storage Sense’s behavior,” Microsoft’s Dona Sarkar explains. “Storage Sense now has the capability to automatically free up disk space by making older, unused, locally available files be available online-only.”

To be clear, she’s referring to OneDrive Files on Demand files there. And you can learn more about this change in a recent post to the Technet blog.
