Increase Hard Disk Space Available In Microsoft Surface RT32/64GB


Unfortunately,Windows-based tablets have limited storage space because it Windows OS and Apps occupies a lot of space. You can add space instead of deleting files by using OneDrive, microSD memory card, or external by external Hard disk and USB flash drives.

You can increase up to 3.5GB by deleting the recovery, but it’s risky. So instead of directly removing recovery create a new recovery image into a USB.

Try to delete Prefetch and temporary files.

Manage your virtual memory by shrinking your paging file. Make sure that your recycle bin empty because you may feel that we deleted files but not permanently deleted. You restore them from recycle bin if you want them back, means it indicates files are present in hard disk but moved to some other folder.

The Microsoft Surface RT tablet’s internal storage comes in two sizes: 32 GB and 64 GB. Now, if you have the 32 GB model, I don’t think you can upgrade the storage to 64 GB because it is built-in and cannot be removed just like its battery.

If you want to expand your storage because you said only 16 GB was left out of the 32 GB capacity, I guess the best option is to use microSD. Your tablet supports microSD and it supports up to 64 GB. If you install and use a 64 GB microSD card and your internal storage has 16 GB left, you will have around 80 GB space.

Here are its specifications.
