Allow cloud tiering for Azure File Sync based on other attributes
In preview for Azure File Sync, there is only a simple tiering policy: volume free space percentage. When enabled, it tiers based on a "heat map" formula, which looks at last modified and last accessed. It would be helpful to allow tiering directly based on one or more attributes like last modified, last accessed, creation date, or file type.
Thank you for your feedback! After Azure File Sync becomes generally available, we do plan to expand the available cloud tiering policies. Please continue to vote for this item to help us prioritize the need for this, and also please let us know in the comments which cloud tiering policies you’d like to see.

Hi - any news on the cloud tiering policies now Azure files sync is general release ? This is one of the key areas for us, (ability to configure what is local and what is cloud based, eg., file last modified or last accessed date or perhaps file type.
Wondering is cloud tiering option available for Windows System?
