    What size external hard drive to create media recovery set


    Just bought a new 27" all in one HP desktop. I need to create the media recovery set on an external hard drive. My hard drive is 1 tb . What would be the best size of a brand new external hard drive to get on it all on there. I was considering a 2 tb drive. I'd much rather have too much room as apposed to not enough.


    Not really well versed in putting together the recovery media on this one hard drive. I've done this using 4 dvd's. Times have changed a bit.


    Thank you for any suggestions.
