How To: Cre­ate a USB re­cov­ery drive

Windows Advisor - - How To -

You never know when you’ll need a Win­dows re­cov­ery drive in or­der to re­store your sys­tem to a pris­tine state, so the time to make one is now – and it’s very easy to do.

Back in the day, PCs would ship with a CD or DVD that in­cluded an im­age of the sys­tem as it left the fac­tory. If your PC’s OS went side­ways, you could eas­ily re­store it to the way things were on day one (though you’d lose all of your sub­se­quently cre­ated data and ap­pli­ca­tions, ob­vi­ously).
