    I have tested WimBoot and Non-Wimboot on my Dell 32GB tablet
    the size difference is not all that much...

    BUT, on a non-wimboot tablet - once you create the recovery drive (save it to a safe place) you can gain the HDD space used by Recovery Image Partition, by choosing the option to delete the recovery partition after creating the recovery drive..

    Windows 10 does not support WimBoot - so better off not having it,

    Followed all your instructions sir, but still the usb reports that there's a problem resetting the pc, refresh even reports that also. What seems to be the problem sir? Is the file dating important, ive replied you before that my winre.wim file is not dated the same as the two *.wim files..
