windows RT 8.1 surface - DISK SPACE

I have a windows RT 8.1 surface that seems to be reporting wrong disk space... It's reporting 0 space left out of 26.4GB but as you will see in the uploaded image .. APPS / MEDIA and RECYCLE bin are reporting basically no space being used up.  Any thoughts on this?

At the point where he wants to factory reset... even that is giving problems.....   RESET PC is asking for a windows installation or recovery media to continue.....    He doesnt have this.

You do realize that the reset will delete every app you have added and all of your files, don't you?
I was really suggesting the steps in part 3 to shrink the WINSXS folder as I have seen it get humongous.
As for the recovery media, it was originally a partition on the tablet just for that and you were supposed to have created a recovery flash drive before you deleted the partition.
