    Defender Offline

    Does anyone know if Defender Offline is supposed to be a default option for the recovery environment? I don't see any options for it, or do I have to use ICD to create a custom option for the WIM?

    I don't believe it does, although this knowledge is from my earlier usage of it on 7 & 8.1. If you wish to do a system recovery, there are various tutorials here that can help you.

    Thanks, we're trying to make some USB DART disks for recovery tools and one of the MS technet articles mentioned that Defender Offline /Stand Alone Sweeper was no longer included in the DART image. Another article mentioned that Defender Offline had been moved to the Win 10 Recovery tools, but it doesn't show up in any of our recovery options.
