Nice tip. I don't need the space, but why not?!? 4GB is 4GB. Better the USB than your surface local storage.
Presumably in the worst case scenario when you're out and about or on a trip and your Surface starts failing to boot - but you can't fix it because you've wiped the recovery partition and left your recovery USB drive at home
If you have the space to spare, leaving it on there is probably
the better option. But if you need the space, it's always a nice option.
