Windows A California man is suing Microsoft, alledging that his Surface tablet did not provide the advertised amount of disk space. The 32G device has 16G of space for users, as the operating system uses the other 16G. The 64G Surface leaves 45G free for users. The case will turn on whether Microsoft has clearly explained to customers how much free space the Surface leaves for their use outside of the OS. How much disk space does your OS consume?

2 million albums? Wow, I have a few hundred, and even in Ogg Vorbis at quality level 2 they end up taking a total of around 9-10 gigs.A halfway decent quality (which level 2 is not) would be more like 12-14GB (don't remember the exacts, it's been a while since I tested myself). And I personally wouldn't even put HD videos on a portable device, lower res is fine with me, but with videos the sizes add up fast.

I struggle to keep even my favorite albums on the 2GB microSD card that came with my phone.
