    Folders and files to save in an OSI file for recovery


    Are there any suggestions in a tutorial file for making a OSI file (with names of folders and file names) on DVD or USB which would be bootable in case of needed system recovery ?

    I also have a valid/usable Nero 2015 on this desktop. Thanks,,, acmanten

    The windows.old file is in the root of the system drive.

    Show "all the files/folders needed" -- for what?

    If your intention it to backup your Win10 install so that it could be restored later, that is not a file/folder backup; instead, that is an image backup -- and images off entire partitions, not just selective files and folders.

    There is not a single file or list of files that you would backup in order to do a full recovery. IF your intent is to have a backup that can be used to restore a working system, then what you need is a full image backup. And, in that case, my recommendation is using a third-party tool like Macrium Reflect.
