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. That includes the ability to expand individual storage pools on an as-needed basis, and various ways to mirror your data for some added redundancy -- as you'd expect, the "spaces" themselves simply behave as a regular disk. Hit the source link below for the full rundown.
