  1. System Image & Repair Disk


    Hello all,
    When I purchased my computer, a salesman recommended I make a system image in case of computer failure and said I should use a 32 GB external drive. So I took his recommendation and bought one of those USB types.
    As I pulled up the application to perform this operation, I saw there was a link to make a system repair disk. So I decided to do that first. I had a dvd-rw 4.7 gb and use that. The down load went well.
    Next I placed the USB device into the slot and started the download but about 20 minutes later, my computer asks me to place another disk to continue. Why? Is not the 32 gb usb enough to make a system image on usb?
    So what do I need to do or check? I speak very little computerese.

    :)

    Win 10 Repair Disk on USB Mem Stick?

    With more & more laptops not having a DVD Drive how do you make a Win 10 Repair Disk on a USB Mem Stick?

    You can make a System Image to USB but not the Repair Disk to usb. Thus you cannot boot the computer & then reload the System Image.

    System Image & Repair Disk

    Windows will not recognize a thumb drive (usb) for system images.
    Try using an external hard drive, (if you have access to one).

  6. I went to "Best Buy" and purchased an external hard drive by "WD" that has 3 tb capacity. If they had the 2 tb in stock, I would have picked out that one. Either one will give me much more capacity that I will ever need as it will only be used to restore "Windows Files". I prefer to keep my personal files on C drive and keep a backup of them on a thumb drive.
