    Question I want that darn 8GB recovery partition

    So mine came with a 8GB partition (aka disk 2), and I did dump it onto 2 USB drives just in case. I use the Create Recovery Drive app and was able to copy the entire drive over to USB, and at the end of the wizard, it asked me to delete and so I said delete. But I received an error stating I can't delete. Since then I tried different commands in diskpart but no luck...here's what i tried:

    1. select disk 2
    2. list partition (shows 1)
    3. select partition 1
    4. delete partition override

    Got an error about I/O and asked me to check event log, but nothing useful there.

    Thoughts?

    You cannot delete the 8gb partition. It is read only.

    You *can* delete the 8GB partition on the 64GB model. I'm guessing that you have the 32GB model. It's partitioned differently. The 64GB capacity *includes* the 8GB partition. This leaves only 56GB availble after subtracting (if one chooses to NOT sacrifice that partition). The 32GB models have a separate 8GB recovery disk. This really makes the 32GB model 40GB (in the eyes of most Marketing departments).

    It appears this 8GB on the 32GB models is Read Only. (I have a 64, so I can't really confirm).
    Hahaha, so there I wasn't smoking the pipe then..phew! Makes sense is that the 64GB model is the difference, I have very limited RAM in my head as you can tell and it's only PC133 technology.

    Errrm, is this correct? When I did a recovery on one I had to use a USB stick with Windows 8.1 on it.

    i wouldnt touch that 8GB... at least you'll never lose your windows installation and drivers.
    on a sidenote:

    I have the 32gb version as well. I had read that this model has 14gb free when office is installed.
    Mine has 14gb free but office isn't installed. Or is it secretly installed and waiting to be activated?

    ASUS sure was cheap not putting the 8GB ROM on the 64GB models. Pay more, and don't really get twice the storage space.

    You get 14 gb if you activate Office 15 then move the Office directory to a micro sdcard

    Before installing office, about 14 gb free, after installing office, about 15gb free.
