    after clean boot it shows only 10gn of free space. I installed HS(1,5gb) and some very few, 1-10mb programs and have only 4,5 gn left. WTF? When i go to apps id doesnt show any ap that weights more than 30 mb, wth is taking this space. I installed 1,5gb game and have no space at all to install anything more. Windows and back up should take max 15gb and with hs it should be like 12gb left minimum.

    Don't forget the Recovery Partition is taking up room. You know, in case you crash the system and need to restore.

    When I removed my Recovery Partition it freed up 4.713 GB.

    Put your recovery partition on an SD card or USB stick... Needs minimum 8GB to set up (because it is over 4GB).

    Go to Charms > Search > type in Create Recovery Drive

    Follow the instructions... Do a Sanity Test to make sure your tablet will Recover. Then follow the procedure again and this time (ONLY AFTER SUCESSFUL TEST) use the "erase recovery partition" option during the process.

    xandros9 recommends putting it on your SD card... I like a removable drive as it works even when you can't boot into windows. Just Recover from BIOS.

    I used a Leef Bridge. No dongle needed and no external power supply required to drive the storage. I made sure my powered down tablet was 100% charged and used the Leef to Recover just 3 days ago.

    When you delete the Recovery Partition it frees up just under 5GB on your internal storage.

    Bridge*3.0 Dual*USB Drive | Leef Supports Windows/Mac/Android on either USB 3.0 or microB USB 2.0 with OTG.
