    Recocery disk made with and without system files difference?


    When I make a recovery disk on usb from the recovery icon in Control Panel (windows 10 laptop) I get an option to choose with system or without system files - there in a sizeable increase in the space demanded by windows to accomplish each of these

    What really is the difference in the usefulness productivity of the recovery usb (what can I do or not do) if I do not back up with system files?

    I know that one can build a recovery drive on dvd by using another option in control Panel called "backup and Restore windows 7" I would love to know whether this is the same as the recovery disk built from the option above? Does it include system files (as there is not such option offered here) or not and if it does, why is the recovery disk on my DVD so much smaller that the 8 to 16 GB recovery USB built with system files above?

    Thanks

    If you do not copy system files, the drive is not fully self containing and needs to access system files on the hard drive Problem is if the hard drive has failed or is corrupted the recovery drive does not work!

    Thank you sir
    But can it access the files from a separate installation disk say on DVD?
    are these system files build related or all concerned with the original windows 10 installation (if they are...we should be making recovery disks after all major updates like anniversary, creator etc)?
    and why the size difference in the way the two recovery discs are created from the two available options in control panel
