"Previous features may 'disappear' "
Yeah, so may working features that were previously there.
Microsoft has split up its band of unpaid testers, the Windows Insiders, into two groups with the latest updates to the company's Beta Channel. Although Microsoft still hasn't confirmed the final release date of Windows 11's next major update (22H2) it has tinkered with the Beta Channel in a similar way to what it did in 2019 …

"By comparing feedback and usage data between Insiders in these two groups, we will get to see if a feature is causing issues with reliability, for example."
So now, there are beta testers and alpha testers, with all new stuff turned on by default, and those folks will assess how much is broken vs. the beta testers ...

Anybody here seeing the same issue? Are they gonna remove shadowcopy for local drives on a client OS, which they had for about 20 years now?
