    I recently had an occasion to contact Support regarding a minor issue with my Surface. as part of their troubleshooting, I reset the surface, basically a clean install of RT. A day or two later I noticed a folder "windows.old" on the drive, just like you would get if you upgraded windows on your desktop. If this is a situation you find yourself in, you can regain some storage by deleting "windows.old". Just an FYI...

    yeah I found that out too, I didn't think it would create a windows.old.
