    I think you may find that 16GB is way too little to make a recovery drive including system file backup. It will be OK if you uncheck the system file backup box, though, but I recommend you use something that has at least 32GB if you want a full recovery drive. Note: a 32GB USB drive may only actually have 28GB free, and may not work. A 64GB pen-drive will do it, or a cheap USB external HD of similar size.

    Hi All.

    I have a problem also trying to create a recovery drive on a PC with Windows 10 32 bit
    When the program recoverydrive.exe runs I untick the backup system files.
    And click next I get the error.
    We can't create a recovery drive on this PC
    Some required files are missing.

    On another PC with Windows 10 64 bit.
    It worked fine until I created the Previsioning package, and tried to remake the recovery drive and got the same error.

    Regards
    Peter

    I created a USB recovery flash drive.

    In File Explorer, the list of files does not correspond to the screenshot for step 5, here:

    For example, setup.exe is missing.

    Please advise.

    Thanks.

    Hey mate,

    A recovery drive is not installation media, so it wouldn't have a "setup.exe" file.
