    Can a recovery partition that's been deleted be put back?

    That is correct. It does not create the original recovery partition when you do a complete reset. You and me both. When I discovered this wouldn't work, I took it in to the Microsoft Store in Cincinnati, and they confirmed that the recover partition is not restored. In hindsight, I would not...

    Can a recovery partition that's been deleted be put back?

    Yes, to both. The Surface RT simply would not recognize the re-created recovery partition as a means for actual recovery. Doesn't matter to me now. I have already sold it on eBay. I was trying to set it back to factory conditions, but ended up having to include the USB thumb drive for...

    Can a recovery partition that's been deleted be put back?

    You'd think it would work that way. It just doesn't. I was under the assumption that a full reset would put everything back on the Surface RT exactly as I bought it from the store. Not so. If you remove the recovery partition, there's currently no way to put it back simply by resetting the...

    Can a recovery partition that's been deleted be put back?

    Okay, that didn't work. I can't get the Surface RT to recognize the recognize the recreated recovery partition. I even went to the Microsoft Store in Cincinnati this morning to see if they could help me, but they couldn't get it to work either. If anyone has any ideas, I'd appreciate it.

    Can a recovery partition that's been deleted be put back?

    I created a recovery drive on a USB thumb drive and deleted the recovery partition on my Surface RT as part of the process to save space. I'm more concerned now that I'm going to lose the thumb drive. In fact, I've already lost it, but fortunately found it later. Anyway, is it possible to...

    Any limit on Micro SD size?

    I don't think the 128 GB MicroSDXC card has been released yet. Hopefully within a few months.

    Windows 8.1 will include boot to desktop option to bypass 'Metro' interface

    All this information is just based on some early builds of 8.1 right? Until Microsoft weighs in, it seems to me that any discussion of a return of the Start button or booting straight to the desktop is only conjecture.

    Lots of Skins Now Available

    I just don't care for putting tablets in a case because cases make them too bulky for my tastes. I don't put a case on my Surface RT or my iPad. Yes, it's a risk, but just last week, my wife dropped her iPad, which was in a very thick case, and it didn't help. It dropped from about four feet and...

    Lots of Skins Now Available

    I've used Skinit.com for skins in the past, but this time I thought I'd try out decalgirl.com. The attached photos show a customized skin I created by uploading a high res image of Peter Paul Reubens' (1577-1640) painting Angels Destroy the Armies of Sennacherib, which is based on 2 Kings...

    As Windows RT doubts mount, Microsoft exec claims 'bright future' for OS

    An OS X tablet already exists. See Technologies for the Creative Mind | Modbook Inc. However, I don't believe Apple has any interest in creating a full-fledged OS X tablet. They will continue to focus on improving the iPad, including its capabilities. It wouldn't surprise me, however, if Macs...

    Should I Purchase RT?

    Somehow I'd doubtful that this article originated on a website called "Cabling and Maintenance." It may be part of a newsfeed their company uses, or perhaps it was just illegally reproduced. It may have been written weeks earlier, which would certainly make sense in regard to the issue of MS Office.

    Should I Purchase RT?

    Here is the FAQ for the differences between regular Office and Office RT: Office Home & Student RT - Office.com I don't know if I'd call it a "lite" version of Office, but rather a full version of Office that's missing a few features. To me the web version of Office is a "lite" version. And...
