SmartFiles for SkyDrive
At 9am PT on Monday, 30 September, Microsoft introduced, via the Inside SkyDrive blog(http://blogs.windows.com/skydrive/b/skydrive/), Smart Files (previously called placeholder files) and searchable Bing OCRed text.
The announcement will serve as follow-up to the team’s original post on SkyDrive/Windows 8.1 data and momentum since Build. Specifically, the blog post will provide an overview of how SkyDrive is successfully adapting to current customer storage needs, including ensuring that they can choose which files are stored on SkyDrive and which files are stored locally.
The blog will also detail the integration between smart files and Bing Smart Search and emphasize the team’s excitement around the user data and usage trends they've seen since build.
