Windows 8 Storage Spaces
by Joneszee - 4/7/12 9:20 AM
I've been using Win8 since September. I installed the OS on a separate partition which installed a dual boot option on startup. When the Customer Preview was released, I reformatted the Win8 partition and installed it.
The computer is a Dell 1747 laptop with a touchscreen.
Far the most part I use it from the 'Desktop' mode. I've made some modifications to allow me to go directly to the desktop mode after the sign-in screen, skipping the initial screen and a small single button application to shutdown/restart the computer from the desktop.
So far I'm ok with the OS and the changes they have made. There are some bugs but the system seems rather stable.
What I'd like to do is use 'Storage Spaces' for the new features it provides. What I'm concerned about is if I re-format my disks and begin using it for my data... will it be compatible with the RC release or the final version of Win8.
Does anyone have any thoughts on this?... Maybe I need to check with the Building Win8 team on this.. but any thoughts would help. But until I'm sure, I'm not going to use this feature with real data.
Thanks for your thoughts
