    Can't create recovery drive

    I could before. Problem possibly an effect of this fix:
    Win 10 losing contact with hard drive

    The previously created recovery drives do not work (I tested them before posting this).

    Note: I do not have an installation disk.

    at admin cmd prompt type:

    reagentc /info

    Why are you insisting on using the (flawed) Windows system backup ?

    Create image(s) using either/both
    - Macrium Reflect
    - AOMEI Backupper

    Both freeware, more stable and more universal.
