    Installed and want to create a recovery disk


    Hi all

    I've done the free update today from windows 8.1 to windows 10

    I'm guessing if I reset my laptop to factory settings I would be back on windows 8 and after the free download period is up I wouldn't be able to update to windows 10 again. I remember reading somewhere there would be an option to create a recovery disk but I cant seem to find this option anywhere. does any know?

    Thanks in advance

    :)

    You can also use the inbuilt recovery drive tool. In the search bar type in recovery drive and it'l take you to the utility.

    Right click on Start button and select Command Prompt
    Type the command
    > winver

    A dialog box will pop up showing which version of Windows you have.

    “N” and “KN” editions follow the upgrade path of the parent edition (e.g., Windows 7 Professional N upgrades to Windows 10 Pro N). These are special versions that resulted from a lawsuit by the EU.

    The N editions of Windows 7 are available in Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, United Kingdom, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.

    Windows 10 N and Windows 10 KN editions include the same functionality as Windows 10, except that these versions of Windows do not include Windows Media Player, and related technologies.

    End-user customers can enable the media functionality to work properly by installing the Media Feature Pack for N and KN versions of Windows 10 (KB3010081).

    This feature pack can be applied to computers running either Windows 10 N or Windows 10 KN editions.

  10. My understanding is that creates Installation media, not a Recovery Disk. You can use that to install Win10, or to Upgrade to Win10. It's not used to restore your existing PC.
