The Release Notes contained within this document provide high level details on feature additions and enhancements in this release. Refer to the Metalogix StoragePoint Reference Guide or Adapter guides for full explanations.

What's New

Archiving by Retained Version has been removed (except on SharePoint 2010) as of this release. Information Management Policy in Archiving configuration has also been removed from this release. (273819, 484121)

Special Note about SharePoint 2019 User Interface

The UI in SharePoint 2019 may need to be updated to be able to view all StoragePoint features such as StoragePoint Details, Large File Details, Library Storage (in the ribbon) and StoragePoint Folder Details. To enable these features, navigate to the Site Settings and Enable StoragePoint SPFx Extension for SharePoint 2019.2019_Modern_UI_Site_Feature

This feature will automatically be installed to the site during an install or upgrade to 5.9.1, if there is an App Catalog for the Web Application, but it will still need to be manually enabled. StoragePoint interface functionality will be limited if this feature is not enabled. Please see the Reference Guide for more information.
