    I have an RCA Windows 10 tablet that only has 321 GB storage. Right now it's in the red stage because I installed Office 365 ProPlus, so I need to delete Windows.old, but it doesn't show "Previous Windows Installations" so it doesn't seem I can remove it. I tried to just delete it with admin privileges (although I knew it wouldn't work), but no dice.

    What next?

    Found it! It was under "Cleanup System Files"! I'll be able to get rid of more than 10GB on the tablet! Yay. That should put me back into the green.

    Glad you have 10GB more of free space. HDD Space can be oh so precious.

    Off topic question :
    Is that the new RCA Cambio 10.1" with detachable keyboard you have ? Like this one ?
    If yes, how is it ?
    I am debating if I will buy one.
    It is affordable to me, comparatively.

    Simrick also has one and we had Edwin salivating over it. :)

    No, it's the Cambio 11.6" one and I got it at Walmart and shipping is free (they're generally not in stock). Here's the link for the 11.6"

    RCA Cambio 11.6 2-in-1 Tablet 32GB Intel Quad Core Windows 10 - Walmart.com

    and for the 10.1"

    RCA Cambio 10.1 2-in-1 Tablet 32GB Intel Quad Core Windows 10 - Walmart.com

    The extra screen real estate vs an extra $30 was a no brainer for me. I've already discovered that I can "scribble" on it; haven't explored that feature a whole lot more yet. It comes with a full size USB port, a mini HDMI port and a mini USB port. An electric charger comes with it and it can be charged with A "plug into the wall" USB charger as well. So, it looks to me like I can use my house phone charger as well, although the one that came with it is just as convenient.

    The only drawback I've found is that the "hard drive is only 32GB and it will only take an extra 32GB SD card for extra storage. It came with the July 29 version of Windows 10, of course and I immediately updated it to the Windows 10 November update: hence Windows.old. It comes with the full version of Windows 10, so there's not a whole lot of extra hard drive space. I installed Office 365 2016 ProPlus and quickly discovered I shouldn't orta did that! However, once I figured out how to delete Windows.old, I got back 7+GB of space. For some reason, you don't get as much as it says you will.

    Final downside is that Windows vs Android is that I can have a whole lot more apps with Android than with Windows. Still, Windows is my OS of choice and I'm happy with it.

    If you don't use it for work, I'd say, "Go for it!" Just be careful of how many apps you install. :)

    Yeah, I think that happened with Edwin. I'd forgotten that.
