  3. Cannot create a recovery disk on my "Upgraded" W10 systems

    Hi Jorg,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community, we appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    I understand your concern about creating a recovery disk on Windows 10.

    This issue might be due to corrupted or missing System files.

    I suggest you to perform the below troubleshooting steps and check.

    Run the SFC.

    System File Checker is a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files.

    Follow the below steps:


    • Right click on the Start button, click on
      Command Prompt (Admin).

    • Type “sfc /scannow” without the quotes and hit
      Enter.

    • After the scan, restart the computer and check for the issue.

    Also refer to the below Microsoft article: Refresh is part of reset in Windows 10

    And: Repair & recovery


    Hope it helps. Kindly update the status of this issue, we will be happy to help you.
