It was just yesterday that Microsoft's Steven Sinofsky detailed the new "Refresh" and "Reset" option found in Windows 8 on the company's Building Windows 8 blog, but he's now already back with an exhaustive overview of yet another new feature. This time it's "Storage Spaces," which will let you pool both virtual and physical drives (regardless of how they're connected) in a variety of ways to keep your data as safe as possible.
