My grateful thanks to fgdn17 , as by reading his reply, he has saved me from returning to the seller, by newly acquired 64gb Pad. I hope that this will be a one-time occurrence, as HP are not so active here in the UK!
I am glad I signed up to this Forum so soon. Almost as useful as getting the Touchpad in the first place! As Arnold would say "I'll be back!!";- hopefully not THIS subject but definitely on other pages.
