Windows 10: Messed up recovery partition

    Messed up recovery partition

    I was trying to create a recovery drive for my windows but it kept giving me an error. I checked reagent/info
    in cmd and it turns out the windows recovery environment was disabled. I tried using the code
    REAGENTC.EXE /setreimage /path c:\windows\system32\recovery
    No luck, gave me:
    REAGENTC.EXE: No valid image found in the specified path.
    I think the reason for this might be myself formatting that the recovery disk in disk management to NTFS form FAT32 because I wanted to create a disk image and it wouldn't let me as the recovery disk was in FAT32. Dumb move, I know and I had to deal with a boot error but I got through that somehow.
    So can someone help me fix this mess up please?
    Thanks in advance.

    I can't help with you with the recovery partition. I do recommend installing the free version of Macrium Reflect and making a image of your drive to a external drive.

    Here's the link if you want to download it. Macrium Reflect Free

    Don't forget to make a the Rescue Media. A image isn't any good if you can't use it.
