    I just purchased a Dell Venue 8 Pro and want to free up space. I don't have it yet as it is being shipped, but I want to buy some SD cards.

    So, can the title question be done?

    I think the Dell backup simply put it in a USB. SD aren't recognized as boot devices.

    You then may discard the recovery partition by yourself. Or ask windows to do so via its create recovery media utility.

    it would be better to put it on a USB drive anyway. they're more durable, they're cheaper, and you're less likely to lose them.

    Can this tablet use a micro to standard USB to turn that port full size?

    Interesting DVP8 doesn't even have a partition dedicated to recovery.

    PS, that USB adapter works nicely.

    My understanding is it's just a collection of files you create, so you can create them on an SD card, but as already mentioned, you can't boot from one of them, so you would need to copy the files to one to recover the device.

    My intention is to do just that, we have several devices, I will create the files on MicroSD's then copy them to our desktop in folders dedicated to each device, then if and when needed I will simply copy the files (Without the folder information so they can boot) to a USB device, in my case this could either be a USB stick, or a USB with microSD adaptor.

    I moved and backed up my Dell Venue 8 Pro's recovery partition off the tablet to my cloud and hard drive backup.

    Then came a time when I had to ship it back for calibration issues, so I took out the recovery files and loaded them onto my 8 GB Class 10 microSD card I had. The recovery process, initiated from the PC Settings, went off without a hitch.
