Microsoft has again released a new preview build for the major Windows 10 update next month (Redstone 5), with some common solutions for rapid ring testers and another interesting change highlighted to help you better manage your disk space.

Storage Sense is, as the name suggests, everything you need to make more sensible use of your available storage space.

The latest introduction is the ability to automatically free up space on your disk by placing older and / or unused files on the local disk and putting them online. In other words, they write in OneDrive, where the actual files are displayed as placeholders on your PC.

Everything happens seamlessly in the background, so this can be a useful and useful feature for people who have trouble finding storage space on their local drive. Testers must enable the function (in Settings, under System> Storage) to give it a whirl.

Still working on it

Strangely enough, Microsoft says in the blog post about the new preview build (17758) that this possibility went live in a previous build (17720), but the company has only emphasized it now and also notes that it makes "continuous improvements" in each update.

There are no other changes to this build and the rest of the work that Microsoft has done revolves around bug fixes, including stopping certain apps that crash while saving files.

Of course, it is only to be expected that the amount of tweaking dies away, since the release of the Windows Update of 10 October 2018 is now just around the corner.
