A few more weeks and then brings Microsoft Windows 10 officially on the market. Almost all tablets, laptops and desktops with Windows 8 free software can be provided with Windows 10, but how does this work when you have a tablet or laptop with very limited storage memory?
There are the recent years many tablets those appeared with 16 GB or 32 GB of storage. This is of course very minimal but reasonable to use if you are satisfied with the default apps and maybe a small number of apps in the Windows Store. But, upgrade to Windows 10 is going to be a lot more difficult when there is not enough storage space available on your tablet.
Windows enthusiast Paul Thurrott saw this problem coming and also has taken the test with the latest preview version of Windows 10. In this version, it is possible via an external storage medium 10 on your tablet or laptop Windows install. How it works is pretty simple.
Windows 10 has multiple gigabytes of free space required during installation and multiple gigabytes of free space to the URWindows.old folder. This folder allows you to put everything back to Windows 8.1. First of all, it is important that you have a recovery disk/partition (recovery drive) on an external usb stick or on and microSD card which is more than enough space. We recommend the use of a microSD card to, especially on tablets with 16 GB or 32 GB of storage, so you always have on hand the files and get more free space for apps and data.
