    Creating USB Recovery Drive


    Created a recovery drive on build 9879. Went to create one for build 9926, option check box is grayed out and it states that key files are missing. The folder is there with the image so I'm not sure about missing files.

    I had several BSODs after the initial install but that problem was corrected but I'm not sure if that's the reason for this or not. I have no intention to restore from this medium but only would use the USB drive to get to WinRE options but wonder what the issue is.

    :)

    Hi Krutik,

    I will certainly help you with the issue you are experiencing in creating USB/pendrive recovery drive on same PC.

    As per you question,

    Yes, you can create USB recovery drive on same PC.

    Create Recovery USB Wizard does not recognize my USB drive - Dell Workstation with Windows 10 Professional

    Hello,

    Thank you for keeping us updated.

    • What is the capacity of the USB device and what is the size of the recovery image which you are trying to create?
    To create a recovery drive, you'll need an external USB drive formatted to FAT32, with enough available storage space for all your recovery data.

    Creating a recovery drive will erase anything that’s stored on your USB drive. Make sure to transfer any important data from your USB drive to another storage device before using that USB drive to create a recovery drive.

    I suggest you to reformat the device to FAT32 and check creating the recovery drive if the issue resolves.

    Please post to us with the results to help you better.
