    Yeah, that was wrong. My mistake.

    Rephrasing my earlier reply: Rescue Media Wizard will overwrite files that have been changed, replacing them with new ones.

    Having said that, I prefer to wipe drive anyway before creating drive. In fact, since Windows 10 allows multiple partitions on a flash drive, I have observed some odd behaviour if drive has say an existing NTFS partition. I cannot remember exact details, but it created a fat 32 partition as well (if there was space) but from memory would not boot.

    My mistake was based on that: I always format the USB in Explorer before creating new rescue media.

    Anyway, once again a good example of importance of fact check before posting. I didn't check the facts and gave invalid info. My apologies.
