Windows 10 Recovery

Recommended Posts

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10ISO links to a page which gives partial instructions and download to allow creation of a Windows 10 installation medium if you cannot use the Windows 10 media creation tool.

 

https://www.microsoft.com/software-download/windows10 is the link for use inside Windows 10 with the media creation tool.

Thanks.  I now am using Windows built in Recovery Drive to create a USB recovery.  My desktop only required a 16GB thumbdrive, but my laptop requred a 32GB.  is there any way to reduce the size needed?  I went through and removed any restore points and any previous windows versions.

The Recovery Drive is to take you back before your change to Windows 10.  No you probably can't reduce the size much, and there is  possibility that your efforts actually increased the size of the recover image.

Hi CW,

I just ran across this thread and find it maybe describes a solution to my problem, which is backup and restore ability for my Acer Win 10 desktop machine which came loaded and ready to run, so I got no source DVD with it.  I see those 2 links you give above now provide update to an April 2018 version.  Does MS keep the latest version on those links, and will they update all previous versions to the latest...?

Will those two links provide a solution to the problem of a failed HDD...?  I find I am able to create a system image backup drive, but I've never been able to restore it into another HDD.  I have successfully created a Boot-Up Flash drive, which will boot up the machine, but it never will jump thru all the hoops MS has set in the path of loading the system image into the new HDD -- i.e. restoring the system.  

Thanks much for any comments.....!!
