An Introduction to Windows 10 Recovery Drives

There is an old saying that says that it is better to stay safe than to be sorry. In life, you have to take ample precautions about a lot of stuff so that even if things go wrong you would have them under your control. One such precaution that would be immensely helpful for you is the creation of recovery drives for your Windows computer. You might store a lot of valuable files in your computer, but you would never know when your computer might malfunction and you might lose all the data that is stored inside the computer. In such a situation, a recovery drive would be immensely beneficial to you. A windows recovery drive helps you to reinstall Windows, after your computer has crashed. It also comes with a range of other troubleshooting tools that would be of much help when you are trying to boot the system, but the system wouldn’t boot. In Windows 10, most of the tools that were part of the OS, are now to be kept on separate bootable USB Keys. In the following post, we are going to take a look at how you can create a Windows 10 Recovery Drive.

The Requirement

You would need a 8 GB or 16GB USB Key for creating a Windows 10 Recovery

The Process

Now, you need to go to the control panel of your computer. Go to System & Security -> Security & Maintenance-> Recovery. You might need to enter your admin password. Once you have done that, you would get a dialog box. Click on ‘Back on System Files to the Recovery Drive’ on the dialog box. This would create the boot-able Windows 10 Recovery Drive.

Using the USB Key

To use the USB Key, you would need to boot from it. In most cases, you would have to press one of the Function Keys (F- Keys) to go to the boot menu. From here, you can select the USB Key and then safely boot from it.

Once you do that, you would get two options – Recover from a Drive and Advanced Options. Click on the ‘Recover from a Drive’ Option to reinstall windows from the USB Key. The Advanced Options would have several options such as System Restore, System Image Recovery, System Repair, Command Prompt and Go Back to Previous Built.

However, if your computer fails and you don’t have a recovery drive, even then you recover your files. All you need to do is get in touch with a professional data recovery company. If you are in the UK, then you would get a number of companies who would help you to recover your valuable data as they excel in Windows Data Recovery in UK. So, get in touch with the experts and recover your data with a great deal of ease.
