Recovery drive for Windows 10 & Windows 11

Hi,

Recently I visited a link

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/create-a-recovery-drive-abb4691b-5324-6d4a-8766-73fab304c246#WindowsVersion=Windows_10

And I created a recovery drive for Windows 10. For creating a recovery drive minimum 16 GB flash drive is required.

While creating the recovery drive, I checked Back up system files to the recovery drive.

Please let us know

  1. In which situation I need to use Recovery drive?

  2. How to use Recovery drive?

  3. After using Recovery drive, what can be recovered and what will not be recovered?

  4. While creating the Recovery drive, if Back up system files to the recovery drive is not checked, what can be missed?

With Regards
NndnG

Bootable Windows 10 or 11 flash drives can be used when Windows fails to boot.

There are menu options to remove updates, run system restore, run startup repair, run manual commands, etc.


There are better methods to protect important files:

a) backup important files to another disk drive and / or the cloud

b) use third party software to make free or pay backup images
