    USB recovery drive


    Windows 10 , create recovery drive, is requesting I insert at least a 32 gb usb drive yet when recovery drive is complete [with system files] windows only used 11 gb.

    This is not necessarily a problem except I have several extra 16 gb usb drives which I would like to use.


    My question is 'Is there anyway to get around this so I can use a 16 gb drive'.. In the past windows requested a 16 gb drive.

    :)

    Recovery Drive for Windows 10 Doesn't Recognize USB Drive

    When I try to create a Recovery Drive in Windows 10, Windows doesn't recognize the flash drive.

    I'm following the instructions to create a Recovery Drive listed here:

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/create-a-recovery-drive


    • 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. (I was asked to confirm my choice, and I clicked "Yes".)

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

    • (Secret Step) Wait a minute or so for the "Please Wait" screen to finish thinking

    • Connect a USB drive to your PC, select it ...
    The issue is that when I connect a USB drive to the PC, it doesn't appear on the "Connect a USB flash drive" screen as a drive that can be selected, and the "Next" button is grayed out.

    However, when I look in File Explorer, I can see the USB drive plugged into the computer. Selecting Properties shows that Windows considers its Type to be "Removable Disk". (Sounds right to me.)

    I'm not getting any error messages.

    My environment:

    A brand new Toshiba Sattelite C55-C5241 laptop with Windows 10 Home. It's never had anything other than Windows 10 on it - unless they upgraded it at the factory.

    A brand new ativa 8GB USB flash drive. Note that the packaging for the USB drive does not include Windows 10 in the System Requirements, but seriously?

    What I've tried:

    • Plugging the flash drive into all three USB ports (USB 2, USB 2, and USB 3)
    • Reformatting the flash drive with FAT32
    • Restarting the computer with the flash drive plugged in
    • Turning off Real-Time Scanning in McAffee

    I've seen a few threads with this issue in Windows 8, but none of the potential solutions in those threads have worked for me. So here I am asking the same question, but for Windows 10.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for resolving this issue?

    Thank you.

    Windows usb recovery drive vs Hp recovery usb drive

    I recently bought a HP laptop and created windows 10 usb recovery drive . However there is an option in HP which will allow to create an HP recovery usb as well .

    If I have to choose one , which would be the right one ? Can you please suggest why ?

    I couldn't find online the difference between the features of HP usb and windows usb recovery drive ? Can someone help me with it
