    Angry T200 does not come with the 8GB flash memory for recovery.

    Hi everyone,

    Recently bought transformer book T200 (32GB + 500GB HDD) and discovered something.

    It's sad to find out that the my transformer book t200 does not come with the 8GB flash memory for recovery. Instead, the recovery partition is placed in the main hard drive (eMMC) thus reducing the usable storage to 20.8GB and after installing windows only 8GB. I was expecting it to be like T100 where it comes with the 8GB flash memory so that i would at least have 28GB of free space.

    So is it only mine or everyone else's one is lacking the 8GB flash storage.

    Yeah my t200 is the same. I was initially worried since like you said my previous t100 did have the extra 8gb. However it is not as bad as it seems, it is not wasted/lost 8gb on the main drive. Since the t200 is a pure windows 8.1 device (rather than updated from 8.0 like the t100), it is wim boot formatted so that the main windows installation shares the files from the recovery partition. See : Windows Image File Boot (WIMBoot) Overview for a detailed explanation of wim boot drives.

    Yes, its not as good as the t100 setup. Especially when the windows updates starts eating up the free space. It is obvious that the introduction of wim booting allowed ASUS to ditch the 8gb flash recovery in the t200. It is exactly because of the way that wim boot works that they could use a partition from the 32gb on board memory without the impact a "normal" non- wimboot recovery would have on available space.

    Whatever you do - don't touch the recovery partition like I did and bricked the t200. Luckily I had a usb backup to reinstall everthing.
