    You could still save files to the USB if you like, but it won't be an image backup.

    Personally, I like to use Macrium Reflect for image backups.

    Hi again,
    Came across this ...How to Create a Windows 10 USB Recovery Drive which seems to be a different method of creating a recovery USB including files. Can you tell me how this differ to the method we discussed earlier?

    A recovery drive would be different than a USB installation drive. The tutorials below can explain the differences between the two. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have.

    Hi folks

    once you've got an iso why not simply use rufus -- it can make anything boot UEFI or MBR or both.
    Program is free and whether Windows install disks or linux distros / live distros I've never found an iso that I can't create a bootable USB drive from. You don't need to boot linux with dd command etc - simply download rufus from here and run it against the iso you want to create a bootable usb of,

    Rufus

    Cheers
