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?

Besides the Microsoft Surface engineers spreading false information about the available disk space, they admit that you cannot install apps to a microSD card:

So install a couple of games (some of which easily reach sizes of a gigabyte and more, on Android I believe MC3 is the record holder) and your storage is full.
