    Windows 10 recovery USB - which size???


    I tried to not use Windows 10 for as long as possible but now had to buy a new laptop with Windows 10.
    On all previous desk- and laptops I used Acronis to make disc images. This has saved me very often.
    I installed latest Acronis on this laptop too.
    Acronis is set so that it is possible to start Acronis before Windows.

    I had an issue last week where Windows would not start. It tried to repair itself but that wouldn't work either.
    I was able to start my Acronis but it got stuck.
    Luckily I had made an Acronis recovery USB and this got everything working again (by returning to previous image).

    I decided to better be safe than sorry and decided to make a Windows recovery USB too.
    The USB is 16GB.
    Windows started making the recovery USB. It took more than an hour (Acronis does this job in some 15 minutes!!!!!!!!!!!!!). And then at the end I got the message that the recovery USB could not be made.
    Nothing else!!!!!
    On the USB is only a little free space left. This makes me think that I need more than 16GB because I have installed a lot of other programs.

    Isn't Windows capable of checking if the free space is big enough before working for an hour????
    Can't Windows explain why it isn't working????

    :)

  2. Windows 10 USB boot

    Hi there, am not a windows 10 expert. I have a pc in the bedroom on windows 10, I messed up the bootloader trying to fix the xp on that system.

    System wont boot, trying to repair via win 10 usb installer.

    Downloaded the media creation tool to install windows 10 installer on usb stick. Not compatible with a host of usb sticks I have. Tried the usb sticks that others use, but I think they use rufus; as the media creation tool by win 10 does not detect the usb stick.

    So quick question, the win10 machine i am trying to repair the bootloader is a win7 upgraded to win10.
    If i were to use the usb win10 installer to "repair installation" does the version of the iso downloaded via the media creation tool matter?

    There is three options:
    Windows 10
    Windows 10 Home
    Windows 10 N

    Also is there a step by step instead of using rufus as I want to try an alternative method of creating a usb win 10 installer. Preferably with more compatibility.

    System is a asus sabertooth 990 (r2?) with AMD phenom X 6.

    Also is there any other software I can load onto the usb that can repair the bootloader easily?
    That would be the ideal alternative. Thanks
