    From the screen shot, your recovery partition is on disk 2, partition 3, you could try to open the Admin command:

    1. diskpart
    2. select disk 2
    3. select partition 3
    4. assign letter=R
    5. exit
    6. reagentc.exe /setreimage /path R:\Recovery\WindowsRE /target C:\windows
    7. Try create a recovery disk to see if it works

    I had to relabel one of my other harddrives because R was already used. Once I did that from Disk Management, here's what I got:

    Disk 2 is now the selected disk.

    DISKPART> list partition

    DISKPART> select partition 3

    Partition 3 is now the selected partition.

    DISKPART> assign letter=R

    DiskPart successfully assigned the drive letter or mount point.

    DISKPART> exit

    Leaving DiskPart...

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>reagentc.exe /setreimage /path R:\Recovery\WindowsRE /target C:\windows
    REAGENTC.EXE: Operation failed: 3

    REAGENTC.EXE: An error has occurred.


    C:\WINDOWS\system32>


    It still did not want to create the image. I tried restarting and trying again, but still nothing. Also, Disk Management does not display an R labeled drive/partition anywhere. It looks the exact same as the image I posted earlier except I relabeled the "MoreGames" drive to "M" instead of "R".

    I does not show the drive letter "R:" in disk management since it is a Recovery partition but it should show in "This Computer".
    Try the command: reagentc /info to see if you are no longer get error 3.

    When you get error 3. That means Windows cannot locate WinRE tool (WinRE.wim). You might want to download:
    Free download Magic Partition Manager Software, partition magic alternative, free partition magic, partition magic Windows 7 and server partition software - Partition Wizard Online
    Install and run. Right click on R partition->Explore to see if the file is there. see screen shot as an example:

    It's there. The letter isn't there though. I ran the same commands in Diskpart again and even though it says it was successful in assigning the letter R, it still does not appear.

    As I said earlier, it won't show up in Disk Management but should show up under "This Computer". Do you see it under "This Computer" ? If not, then use Minitool to set it. Right click on it->Change Letter then click "Apply" on the top left to commit the change.

    NOTE: Assign to "R" just so you can identify it as Recovery, You can assign any available Letter and try it again

    Sorry for the mix up, I meant that I couldn't see the drive letter in the minitool. I was able to set the drive letter in minitool and it shows up perfectly fine now but running the reagentc commands still return the same error.

    I really appreciate your help with this.

    OK. Try the command again as follows:
    REAGENTC.EXE /setreimage /path R:\Recovery\WindowsRE
