Create A Windows 10 Recovery Drive Using USB Flash Drive

we all fear what if our OS fail to load and a dread blue screen appears, this has been a major problem until windows 7 which lets you create a recovery drive but only on optical disk, how ever windows8 will automatically create a rescue image( dedicated recovery partition on your PC) and have a option to create a back up copy of this rescue image you should defiantly do this my friends this is the main advantage of windows8 over previous version of windows OS

A Recovery Drive lets you boot your system and easily access a number of recovery and troubleshooting tools to revive a crashed  Windows 10 system. you can avoid  paying to some to get your system working and you will have a back up of original software and if u choose your personal files also.

Recovery Drive Using a USB flash drive:-

  1. The USB flash drive you use will become a dedicated Recovery Drive—you won’t be able to use it for anything else.
  2. In its base configuration, the contents of the Recovery Drive will require about 330 MB of space. However, if you are creating a basic Recovery Drive, you can use a 1GB USB flash drive.
  3. If you are going to add system files, you’ll want at least a 16GB USB flash drive(recommended).

I suggest you all to backup you system files so use 16GB flash drive

Note:-  Recovery Drive is bit specific. i.e if you create a Recovery Drive in a 64-bit version of Windows 10, you can’t use that drive to boot up and repair a 32-bit version of Windows 10 and wise versa.

  1. open the Control Panel and type Recovery in the search box (or)  press the Windows key and type recovery drivewguest
  2. You’ll then encounter a UAC, and you need to click Yes to continue. wguest
  3. you’ll will be directed to screen in the Recovery Drive wizard wguest
  4. Now you have to select a USB drive. If the drive isn’t already connected to your system, insert it now.wguest
  5. Next you will get a message that your usb drive contents will be deleted just click creat option at bottom right, If you are creating a basic Recovery Disk, the process will just take a few minutes. If you are including a system files it may take long time to complete so be patent or continue with other works. wguest
  6. When the process is complete, you’ll be prompted to delete the recovery partition on your hard disk this will free some memory

Always be prepared:)
