Windows 10: Create Provisioning Package in Windows 10
It's 19.6 GB...
Thanks - I think there's a limit of 32GB for the total size of Recovery Drive (including the usmt file) so it would be an issue if it was near to 30GB. Fingers crossed it works second time.
So far so good..I'm using a SanDisk 32GB USB stick it recommended a 32GB size and of course with FAT you wind up with about 29.7 GB usable. About halfway done now and it appears to be self compressing...used space goes up to about 11.5 and drops back to 11.3 GB...just dropped back to 10.8..used...
Good news! Thanks for posting back with the details of what you did.
I'm sure you know this, but to reiterate for anyone else reading this- the Provisioning Package doesn't include user settings or files from C:\Users.
So you'd need to back those up separately. I believe if you reinstalled from a recovery drive, it would reset any preferences back to defaults too.

I didn't do anything, but those .bat files seemed to work for me when I tried them just now. Do they work for you too?
I copied the instructions to a text file and manually typed them in yesterday [as you suggested 3 days ago and everything ran fine inc making the new recovery USB drive. At 73, I probably didn't read the instructions down further [so I could manually type them in] and thought it wiser to download the bat file and reduce my mistakes.
Ah I'm glad it worked for you
I was in the setup and I think i was on the licence agreement page. When I klicked accept, "what to keep" popped up on the top for an instant then was replaced with "making sure you're ready to install" which sat there saying "please wait" for about...
After some troubble with my PC I wanted to restart in safe mode, but it can't do that. Breaks off and write something about a "hard crash", only the taskbar works, and I can also ust winkey+R and start regedit aso.

I'm surprised that on downloading the build there's no indication of its current progress or even WHERE it gets downloaded to.
I'd like a bit more control over this -- especially on the % download.
