    New Recovery Drive With Version 1709


    I just installed the update for Version 1709 and created a New recovery drive right after the update. I am Running windows 10 pro. I hope someone can tell me if this new recovery will have the new operating system or if it going to use the the old recovery partition that came with my computer, if so I just did a lot of work for nothing. While I am at it can you tell me a good free software that would back up my entire hard drive to a USB flash drive that I would be able to copy to a new H.D. in case of a drive failure. Thanking you in advance. Alan Nimco

    The recovery drive should have the version of Windows 10 on it that you created it from. So if you created it version 1709 installed, that's what it should have on it. The Windows recovery drive is not created from any recovery partition, it is created from files contained on the C: drive.

    Macrium Reflect Free is the highest recommended backup software on this forum:

    Make sure you also create a Macrium Reflect Free rescue drive from within the Reflect program.
