    The creation of the recovery drive is controlled by Windows during the instillation process. There is no need for you to do this yourself.

    Hello Shoe,

    If you mean the "USB" Recovery Drive, then it would be best to create a new on the USB to keep it updated for your current installation if you had checked the Back up system files to the recovery drive box.

    Otherwise, you don't need to.
