How to manually increase Available Storage Space on a WinBook Tablet

Description: WinBook has made available a utility known as WBOptimize which can be used to maximize available storage space on your WinBook Tablet C: drive. Some antivirus programs identify changes that WBOptimze makes as if it were a virus, and therefore block the utility. If you are unable to download or run WBOptimize because it is being blocked, this article will show you how to manually make the changes to increase the available storage space on the C: drive of your WinBook Tablet.
