Conserving storage space for users is about to be made even easier for Windows 10 users

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) is set to add a feature to Windows 10 which would assist users in removing unnecessary files which otherwise clog the pipes and takes up space. Microsoft is calling this feature “Storage Sense.”

Windows 10 Insider Build 15014 was released only recently for the Fast Ring members of the Insider Program, and it comes with a number of improvements and changes. One of those improvements is the upcoming Storage Sense, which will feature two options to conserve space on your hard drive: deleting temporary files that are no longer needed, and removing files from the Recycle Bin which are older than 30 days.

It also comes with a manual option to free up space on the disk, but these two options should make sure that there is plenty of free space available, and the user is required to step in himself only in exceptional cases to make additional space available. Obviously, Storage Sense is turned off by default, but you can turn it on easily by navigating to Settings > Storage.

Storage Sense joins Microsoft’s own ebook store, an option to use any color as the accent color, and a number of other exciting changes which might come to the Windows 10 Creators Update. It is scheduled to be officially released this April, so it’s not long before we get our hands on the latest update ourselves.
