    Windows 10 recovery disk in DVD?


    Is it possible to take Windows 10 recovery disk in a DVD? I know that recovery image can be created in a USB flash drive. Same possible with DVD?

    Thanks

    Looks like what I did make was a Repair disk Joyous, not a recovery disk. Looks like Windows 10 only gives you 1 choice to make the recovery disk on a USB drive. No choice for making one on a dvd. What you could do thou is make a complete backup of your Windows 10 partitions to a DVD using 3rd party backup program like Macrium Reflect which is a free program.

    Yes, I made one and it was 25gb, way too big for one DVD @ 4.7gb

    Yeah, I make complete system backups to my 2nd hard drive, about once a week lately cause of the tweaking I keep doing. This way I can choose which backup to restore incase I screw something up making changes.

    Depends on the size of the flash drive. If it will fit on a DVD (dual layer probably needed) then you can make and ISO from the flash drive then burn it to a DVD.
