At present, many Windows users have upgraded from the earlier Windows 7/8 version to the latest Windows 10 system. Although this method saves a lot of trouble, what will happen if the system has a problem and needs to be reinstalled? When reinstalling the system, we need a Windows 10 system recovery drive, otherwise we will need to reinstall the Windows 7/8 system and then upgrade again. Therefore, to avoid some unnecessary troubles, let's take a look at the tutorial on creating system recovery drivers in Windows 10 provided by foreign media TechRadar.

We can use Microsoft's Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant to create installation media on a CD or USB stick. Download and use this tool, we can choose to 'create installation media for another computer.'
2. Select language and version
We need to choose the language used and the version of the Windows system. It should be noted that our choice must match the version of the system that has already been installed. Otherwise, the license key will be invalid. Of course, we also need to make sure that we have chosen the correct system version (32-bit or 64-bit).
Click Next, we need to select the type of media, such as burning a disc or creating a USB drive, and then wait patiently for the Windows system to download files and create media.
3. Looking for a recovery driver
Older versions of the Windows system allowed the user to create a recovery driver in the recovery options of the control panel. On Windows 10 systems, although this feature is still available, you may not find this option in any of the setup windows. We can find it by typing 'Restore Driver' in the Cortana search box.
4. Backup system files
After the recovery driver tool is started, it will allow the user to perform a system reset or troubleshoot. At this point, we can choose to back up the system files to the drive and click 'Next'. After a brief system check, we will be asked to connect a USB drive.
5. Determine the U disk size
This tool will tell us how large a U disk we need, usually at least 4GB. Please note that everything in the USB flash drive will be cleared during this process. After confirming that the Windows 10 system is active, click to go to the next step.

In the fifth step, after we click "Next", a warning will be displayed to clear the entire contents of the USB flash drive. If you want to continue, click "Create". At this point, the system will begin to create recovery drives. culture of health This process takes a certain amount of time, but we can use the computer for other operations. After the creation is completed, the system will pop up the preparation prompt. At this time, we can click to complete the task.
7. Try different installation methods
If you don't want to make a complete recovery driver, consider other options, such as Start> Settings \u0026gt; Updates and Security. Select Restore from the left menu. You will see several different recovery options. We can choose to 'reset this computer' to reinstall and choose whether to keep personal files.
Of course, it is still somewhat troublesome to create a recovery drive by yourself. We can accomplish system reinstallation through some third-party one-click recovery tools. In addition, if the system has been safe and sound, then it would be better.
