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?

I'm amazed that people don't know the good practice of separating your personal data from an OS data. I do it for years and it never let me down. If something is wrong I can safely restore the OS, but the configurations and my stuff [music, docs, etc] are safe and untouched on other mount point ...
I won't even mention creating backups. Most people probobly don't do backups anyway.
