    Recovery Drive Question


    Is the recovery drive made with my desktop running W10 Pro 64 bit going to work if ever needed for my laptop running W10 Home 64 bit or will I need to create a seperate recovery drive for the laptop as well? If I do need a separate recovery drive for the laptop, can someone tell me if these recovery drives are computer-specific or OS type specific?

    I've looked around and can't seem to find a definite answer on that.

    I believe that one is computer specific - won't work on other computers, but I might be wrong and someone will hopefully correct me if I am.
