    Create Rescue Disk fails during disk creation

    Have a new Double Power 8.1 Tablet that I've upgraded to Win 10. Now I've got it set up just right, I'm attempting to create a Rescue Disk. Purchased a 16gb micro-usb drive which is successfully recognized. Ran 'Create Rescue Disk' from Windows search and checked 'copy system files' b4 proceeding. Process fails after about 200mb copied to disk.

    USB drive was formatted MSDOS32, reformatted as NTFS and retried. Got same "Create Rescue Disk has encountered an error and cannot continue" error.

    Windows 10 has been made so 'user-friendly' that it gives you no useful information when it has an error. How can you know what size hammer to use as a workaround? If the process would tell you what it doesn't like, you could figure out what to do to make it happy.

    Anybody experienced with 'Create Rescue Disk' on Win10?
