Yesterday I updated my desktop from Windows 8.1 Home to Windows 10 Home. Today I tried to create a recovery USB drive following ..............
This fails. I get the message "We can't create a recovery drive" with the added info "A problem occurred while creating the recovery drive". I don't get to the screen to select the USB flash drive. No indication of what the problem is/was which is most helpful (?) I have a 64 GB formatted USB drive installed.
Appreciate help in resolving this problem.
Edit1: Desktop is a dual boot system. Second drive had Windows 7 Pro installed and I used this with the Insider program via all the windows 10 previews. Now running Windows 10 Pro. Just tried to create recovery drive for this. Same result as above !??!
Edit 2: Have HP laptop also updated from 8.1 to 10 Home. With this device I can select USB drive (min 32GB). It starts to write but eventually window appears saying "We can't create a recovery drive" with the added info "A problem occurred while creating the recovery drive". That's funny, Just like my desk top !??!
Edit 3: Repeated HP laptop USB drive creation. Still not finished after approx 90 minutes - about 1/8th completed. Tried cancelling and still doing so after 5-10 minutes. Used Ctl+Alt+Del to end task. Give up.
Any ideas as to what the problem(s) could be ??
