A Recovery Drive lets you boot your system and easily access a number of recovery and troubleshooting tools to revive a failing Windows 10 system. If you haven’t done so yet, you need to create a Windows 10 Recovery Drive. That way, you’ll be prepared should you encounter a problem with your Windows 10 installation.
In Windows 10, you can create a Recovery Drive on a USB flash drive as well as on an optical disc. While both procedures produce the same recovery tool, they are created from different user interfaces. The USB flash drive version is created using a stand-alone tool; the optical disc is created from the Backup And Restore (Windows 7) user interface. Why Microsoft didn’t unify the process under one roof, I don’t know. In this article, I’ll show you both ways to create a Windows 10 Recovery Drive.
