    This tools works pretty damn good. Went from 1.01GB of free space to 3.00GB. Thanks for mentioning it!

    Win 8.1


    Glad to be of help. If I could be sure I could re-set this WinBook myself, I'd buy another one. I want to know more about its basic setup and file configuration. UEFI and INSTALL.WIM puzzle me.

    hi all
    I have the tw100 of winbook and I install on it the win 8.1 pro and now all of the drivers are gone, the partitions stays the same and I didn't remove them.

    or any image?

    First off, congratulations on your purchase. You are wise.

    I just purchased one three days ago. Love it.

    I can't help you with your specific problem, but did find the Winbook tech help site: ---Technical Support - click on Winbook
    Tech Center (click on Winbook).

    HTH......

    I have a new TW700 with Windows 8.1

    I am looking in the 5.57 Recovery Partition and it says it has 5.57 Free (100% Free). I heard that if you reinstall Windows and wipe both partitions then combine into 1, you can get it working as a normal install. Drivers are posted online (google TWxxx drivers).

    I have a brand new 16gb tab with nothing installed except Chrome and I have 1.84gb to use. This is my first Windows Tab. I knew Full blown Windows ate up most of the internal space but that is kind of useless.

    Here is my findings:
    Windows uses a Recovery Partition with all of the core files (why it reads 100% empty, I dunno). So basically the Partition IS the actual Windows installation in this instance. All the extra crap (drivers, themes, non-essential files) are stored on the C:\Windows folder. Deleting this partition is basically like deleting the Windows Folder in this setup.

    I run a 128gb SSD + 2TB HDD setup with symlinks to the HDD for installations on my laptop. So a 64gb+ SD is the way to go here.

    Turn off Windows Updates ASAP. They store on your C drive and eat up space fast.

    I have read that installing Windows 10 from a USB stick works fine if you grab all the drivers first. It is a bit buggy still though.

    It sounds like it uses WIMBoot, https://technet.microsoft.com/en-ca/.../dn594399.aspx. Disk cleanup will free up some of the space used by Windows update. Just check the box for, Windows Update Cleanup.
