    Create recovery drive with "backup of system files" option.


    Hello friends!

    I have a little doubt regarding the creation of a recovery disc.When starting the creation of a recovery unit, if I select the option "Back up system files to the recovery drive", according to the media creation program, I can perform a Windows installation with that disk.Does that mean that on that disk will be stored both the recovery drive and the files needed to perform a clean installation of Windows?

    Many thanks!

    You have to backup system files or else you will not be able to use recovery drive in event hard drive fails.

    You would have to create a usb installation drive (on another pc) if you do not select that option now.
