As it can be difficult to locate all of our public content related to Storage and FileSystems on various Microsoft sites for the Windows 8 Consumer Preview and Windows Server “8” beta, I wanted to provide a list of documentation related to the consumer preview.

The list below is intended to be a starting point of available resources from the Storage team.
