Hi followed your instructions signed out signed back in with pin first no problem signed back into Microsoft web page with the new password no problem signed back out logged off this time signed in with the new password and I got this message

    This feature requires recoverable media such as a USB flash drive and then try again. Have not done 1

    USB flash disk error.

    it says CONTROLLER error, not disk error.

    The problems with the USB controller, possibly drivers.

    USB flash disk error.

    Hi.
    Hmm happens only with that disk, with the rest none errors so I don't think it's a USB Controller fault. I have the lñatest drivers installed...
    Many thanks

    Windows 10 Recovery drive error - Can't create a recovery drive on this PC

    Hi Andy,

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community. I am glad to assist you on this.

    • Do you have enough space in your external drive or disk?
    • Did you make any changes to the computer prior to this issue?
    • Have you created a recovery media previously on the computer?
    As per the issue description, it seems like you are unable to create a system image recovery driver using a USB drive on the computer as it prompts an error message “We cannot create a recovery drive on this PC. Some required files are missing.

    I would suggest you to follow the below steps and try to create a recovery drive and check if it helps.

    • From the taskbar, search for Create a recovery drive and then select it. You might be asked to enter an admin password or confirm your choice.

    • When the tool opens, make sure Back up system files to the recovery drive is selected and then select Next.

    • Connect a USB drive to your PC, select it, and then select Next > Create. A lot of files need to be copied to the recovery drive, so this might take a while.

    • When it’s done, you might see a Delete the recovery partition from your PC link on the final screen. If you want to free up drive space on your PC, select the link and then select Delete. If
      not, select Finish.
    You can also use Windows 10 media creation tool to troubleshoot problems when your PC can't start.

    Here is the link:

    Thank you.
