I have a Surface RT (32 GB) and it only has 1.69 GB of space left on the HD. The thing is that I have almost nothing on it (just a few apps that I check and do NOT take a lot of space, and small files), so I don't know what is taking so much space. Does anyone knows where is all that memory going? I have not being able to find it (I have checked the size of the apps, delete the trash can, delete the internet history/cookies)...
Also, I want to upgrade to Windows 8.1. These are the two ways that I have think of doing it, but I will like your opinion on which option is better (or if there is a better way):
Plan 1: take the tablet to its original status (in PC settings > General > Remove everything and reinstall Windows), move the recovery files to a thumb drive (http://www.surfacegeeks.net/forums/index.php?/topic/192-surface-rt-how-to-free-up-4-gigabytes-of-storage-space-on-your-rt/), and do all updates to take it to Windows 8.1
Plan 2: free some space by moving the recovery files to a thumb drive, make the upgrade to Windows 8.1, run a cleanup disk and defragment the drive
Making a backup of the files in the tablet is easy b/c there is not much in it, but my main concerns for the process are: I am going to loose microsoft office? is it going to ask me for any key/license number (if I ever had one, I don't know where it is)? anything else that I am missing?

Good day all,
I have a general question about the Surface Windows RT.
I have heard that it comes with MS Office installed on it. I also heard on a Windows Weekly podcast recently that they thought that it didn't include Outlook.
Has anyone heard information about Office on the Surface Windows RT?
Here is a specification sheet from the Microsoft web site.
Surface with Windows RT, 32 GB: $499
Surface with Windows RT, 32 GB with Black Touch Cover: $599
Surface with Windows RT, 64 GB with Black Touch Cover: $699
Surface Touch Cover (white, red, black, cyan, or pink): $120
Surface Type Cover: $130
Initial reactions? To high?
I stated on episode 3 of the podcast, http://surfacegeeks.net/the-surface-geeks-podcast-episode-3.html , that I think I made a mistake getting the 32 Gb version. I have not loaded a whole lot, YET. I plan on installing a lot more this week and weekend. So far it has just been testing for me.
I'm not entirely sure of the return policy but I'm thinking of returning this one and getting a 64. What do you think?
A pleasant surprise today.
Evernote updated and allows Rich Text Formatting. No check list but it's a start.
