Win 10 computer won't create Boot Flashdrive

Recommended Posts

A couple years ago I bought a new Acer desktop computer with Win 10 preloaded  on it.   Best computer I've ever owned...!  Hasn't skipped a beat yet. 

So I thought it's time to do a system backup, as I did not get a Win 10 source disk with it, and have NO WAY to reinstall Windows if it crashes.  With help from a copy of "Windows 10 Step by Step" I apparently succeeded in creating a system image backup on a new hard disk, then proceeded to attempt to create a Boot Flashdrive.  There are 6 simple numbered steps in the book.  I whipped thru the first 5 with no problem.  Step number 6 says "click the CREATE button to start the process".

The result is "Windows cannot create........"  and gives NO indication of what to do next....  and not a word about it in the book either....!!

Anybody know.....?
