Windows 9 Storage Sense 1

In the leaked screenshots of the upcoming Windows 9 build 9834, we reported yesterday that Storage Sense was spotted under PC Settings.

If you are a Windows Phone user, you must be aware of the Storage Sense app. Storage Sense app allows you to manage the storage in Windows Phone devices, it gives you breakdown of the storage space used by category, and also the amount of free space left.  You can tap any category to view more details, find where to manage those files on your phone, or clear out temporary files. If you’re running Windows Phone 8.1, Storage Sense provides you with additional actions to free up space, such as moving apps to your SD card (if you have one), uninstalling apps, and deleting downloaded files.

Today, posted some new screenshots of Storage Sense in Windows 9. It has two new sections, Storage Overview and Default save locations. Storage Overview gives you information on what’s filling your storage and allows you to free up some space if needed. The second one allows you to set default save locations. This would come handy when you are buying cheap Windows tablets that will come with internal storage as low as 16GB. In those cases, users can select their MicroSD card they added as the default storage location.

What do you think of this new feature in Windows 9?
