Warnings will start appearing in the Settings app of Windows 11 when your OneDrive storage is full.

The Windows Insider programme is becoming even more perplexing with the most recent update to Windows 11 in the Release Preview Channel. In addition to having a higher build number than Beta, it also adds features not available in channels with less stability. Check out the new notifications in the Settings app if you’re testing Windows 11 upgrades in the Release Preview Channel, which is meant to get new features after Dev and Beta and serve as the final testing stage before new content is released to the general public.

According to Microsoft, OneDrive members now have access to new storage notifications in Windows 11 build 22621.898 (KB5010044). Once you approach the OneDrive storage cap, the Settings app will begin showing banners on the System tab. Conveniently, the adverts contain links that allow you to purchase more cloud storage from Microsoft.

Microsoft offers the following description of the most recent Settings app updates:

  • New! On the Systems area of the Settings app, we provided storage alerts to Microsoft OneDrive members.
  • When your storage space is almost full, alarms start to surface. Additionally, you may control your storage and, if necessary, buy more space.

New! We gave you access to all of your OneDrive memberships’ total storage space. The Accounts screen in the Settings app also shows the entire storage.
Along with the addition of storage alerts, Windows 11 build 22621.898 also includes a long variety of fixes and enhancements, including the Windows Spotlight theme. Check out our dedicated post to see what has changed in Windows 11 build 22261.898.

Microsoft has already included OneDrive-related notifications in Windows 11 updates. Start menu badges that can push OneDrive “ads” and other notifications were just recently implemented by the firm.
