    Hi
    I'm running Windows 10 on an HP Envy All in One. My preferred backup method is a System Image Backup. When the backup completes it always prompts me to create an System Image Disc. The problem is the this computer doesn't have a built in CD recorder/player. Are there any workaround suggestions.
    Thank you in advance.

    Hi,

    System Recovery disc should work with the anniversary update, still we suggest you to create a new recovery disc as Windows 10 anniversary update has new features.

    Thank you.

    A USB Recovery Drive (without the system files included) is functionally identical to a System Image Disc you would have produced on a CD.

    *ArrowCreate Recovery Drive in Windows 10

    With the system file included it becomes more powerful than the CD, in that it will contain all the source files needed to reinstall Windows and perform a factory reset (including any OEM customizations).
     
  7. Hi Bree
    That solution sounds more practical.....can you be more specific about how it is created?

    I gave you a link to a TenForums tutorial, all you need to know is there....

    I purchased an external USB-connected CD/DVD reader/writer for my two laptops; you might want to have such around because:
    -- you can also make CD/DVD rescues as a "backup" to your USB boots
    -- there are still over-the-counter software packages that come with install CDs or DVDs

    Bob,

    By "it always prompts me to create an System Image Disc", I think you meant "it always prompts me to create a System Repair Disc".

    A Windows 10 installation disk can do everything that a System repair disk can. You can make one from the ISO file that you might already have downloaded to install the latest Windows 10 version. You can make it directly onto USB. https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/2...dows-10-a.html

    I hide all the USB root files and folders on mine to prevent accidental deletions and then use the rest of the space on the USB as a general backup drive. The installation disk still functions correctly even with those items hidden.

  12. Hi folks
    Thank you all for your comments and suggestions. (Note to Try3.....yes I did mean a System Repair Disc.)
    I have decided on a USB repair and I'm just curious about the approximate size of the repair disc. Just let me know and then I will mark the thread closed and solved.

    System Repair Disc

    In Windows 10, the CD produced if you get it to make a System Repair Disc contains the same files and folders as a USB recovery drive without the system files included.

    Macrium's Rescue Media is (are?) also worth building. Comes as part of Macrium Reflect and Macrium Reflect Free. Their Windows boot repair facility is as good as anything else I've found. Worth adding to your toolbox of repair/rescue disks, IMO.
