    A full system image backup will do the trick and enable you to recreate your current system including all the drivers and programs - it is an exact copy of the drives and partitions on the hard disk of your laptop.

    You can use the built in windows system imaging software and it will prompt you to create a recovery disk too so that you can boot from a USB or DVD drive in case of any system failure.

    Alternatively there are good 3rd party tools which will do the same; Macrium Reflect is often recommended on this forum.

    1.Is the recovery drive created similar to custom created recovery partition like in DBAR (dell back up and recovery).
    2.how should i create the image which includes windows installation +drivers only , which can be saved in local hard disk and external USB.

    Macrium Reflect is more reliable and much more flexible.

    Disk imaging creates a compressed copy of your whole partition(s) or disk as you select, or of your 'system' (C: + others). So you restore the whole of that.

    The idea is then that you keep that updated by incremental or differential imaging (these create smaller images representing changes from the original). Thus you can restore your disk/partition/system to how it was on several previous dates.

    The nearest to what you require is to simply keep the first image.

    Don't keep these on the same hard disk. Why? Your disk may fail. With the images you can quite easily replace your disk and restore Windows.

    You should aim to have a backup disk e.g. twice as large min as what you are aiming to keep backed up.
    You can also extract individual files and folders from the images.
