Storage sense feature "New apps will save to" is greyed out

Olivier Bordes asked on


The Settings->System->Storage->'New apps will save to' combo box is greyed out, at least in french builds 10166 and 10240.

Has anyone managed to have this option enabled in recent builds ?

The possibility to store apps on an SD card is very important when using low hd capacity devices like small tablets.

Hi Eric,

We have actually made the decision to postpone the apps on SD functionality to a later release. While I know this feature excited many of us, we didn't feel like it was ready for prime time. Our goal is to delight users with everything that we build, and we truly feel that that is what will happen once we have fully built our vision for this feature.

What if you don't want to do this to an SD card, but just to a regular secondary hard drive? I don't care about SD cards, but I do care about not having to save apps to my (smaller) boot drive,
