    I posted this in the Surface forum because it has been confirmed for that device, not sure if this would work with the Vivo RT using its USB dongle or the dock's USB port, but if it does this could be a way to get the 4GB used by the recovery partition back.

    Not sure how I feel about this, I like the idea of increased storage, but not the idea of deleting my recovery partition, that has come back to haunt me on past machines. I may make multiple recovery USB's, then delete the partition.

    Found the fix from xda forums .. disabled error logging and error reporting as below ..

    Generally logging can cause some sluggishness at times because log files are constantly accessed and written to. You can turn these off if you wish. Search for gpedit.msc and launch it. Navigate to User Configuration, Administrative Templates, Windows Components, and then select Windows Error Reporting in the left column of the Group Policy editor. Double-click Disable Logging in the Settings section of the Group Policy editor. Select Enable and then click OK to save the changes. Do the same for Disable Windows Error Reporting.
