If you own a 32GB Microsoft Surface tablet that’s running Windows RT, you probably have around 16GB of free hard disk space left. Most of the storage space is taken by Windows RT itself, and its built-in apps. In this tutorial I will show you how to free around 4GB of space used by recovery partition, and use that additional free space for your games, videos, apps, music, and documents.

Before proceeding to below steps let me note that in order to make this procedure possible you will need to have a flash drive with at least 4.5 GB free space.

Step 1: Plug in your empty USB disk to your Microsoft Surface and then press Win+W buttons on your keyboard.

Step 2: Inside search field type recovery and then from left pane click on Create a recovery drive.
