Surface storage options and hard drive sizes

Applies to: Surface Devices

Pre-installed software, apps, and updates use a significant amount of the internal disk space on your Surface.

How much disk space do I have?


The amount of free disk space available for your music, photos, videos, and other content depends on which Surface you have. The available space may also vary by country or region depending on which languages and apps are pre-installed.
