    2 Questions

    !1 witch files are we backing up on the thumb Drive ??
    !2 I do allot of registry tweaks and services tweaks I would Like to know how to back these files and How to recover them ??

    Because this is no fun when ur system goes down and specially with me Because all these tweaks I try out then i have to do a restore Just to find out that every thing i did is gone and have to start all over

    Does any one here know how to do it manually or with third party software

    Hello Ethelwulf,

    For what you're wanting, it would be best to create a system image using something like Macrium Reflect Free.

    You can create an image as often as you like with Macrium based on your needs.

    It would be best to create new threads for each separate issue instead to keep this tutorial on topic.

    For those unable to create a Recovery Drive with the back up system files box checked:

    (1) Open an administrative command prompt, type REAGENTC /Info and press the ENTER key. On the screen, check to see if 'Recovery Image Location' is blank. If it is, try the following steps:
    (2) Obtain an INSTALL.WIM file from a Windows 10 ISO file. If the ISO file you have contains an INSTALL.ESD, convert it to INSTALL.WIM (I use NTLite, but there are other conversion utilities that should work as well).
    (3) Create a directory on the hard drive called C:\Win10-Recovery and copy the INSTALL.WIM to it.
    (4) Open an administrative command prompt and type the following line and press the ENTER key:
    REAGENTC /SetOSImage /Path C:\Win10-Recovery\INSTALL.WIM /Index 1
    (5) At the administrative command prompt, type REAGENTC /Info and press the ENTER key. The 'Recovery Image Location' should no longer be blank.
    (6) Try to create the Recovery Drive with the system files.

    Yes you are right it is Empty i must look for an ISO first

    But can you please explain a little about what we are backing up or what we are doing

    Thank you for your help

    Ethelwulf,

    That is not applicable for what you are wanting. A recovery drive with back up system files checked will only include to be able to reinstall Windows. It will not include your accounts, apps, or files.
