    User tataniko has posted a very good and detailed tutorial on how to use new feature called WIMBoot on our Toshiba Encore. You can find it here:

    Windows 8.1 / WimBoot - TOSHIBA FORUMS

    I've tried it and I have 21GB free after Windows + Office installation. You should definitely check it out. Speed and stability is the same as with the stock installation. :)

    Cheers.

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I'd heard of wimboot being included in the latest Windows 8.1 update, but it looked very complicated. I followed the guide in the previous post, and had 22gb out of 32gb free after I was done. No noticeable change in speed, just a ton of extra space, for FREE. I read the guide a couple of times to make sure I understood what was going on. It took a couple of hours once I started.

    Toshiba should offer an image of this for updating all of the Encores they've sold, and put it on all new ones. Makes them much more useful.

    No problem, I'm glad that it worked out for you. I've been using it for a week now and everything is running perfectly, just ton of free space.
