In the past, we were used to repairing the computer with the factory-attached recovery disk. How if you don’t have such disk? In this essay, we will talk about how to create Windows 10 recovery disk with Renee PassNow and how to create Windows 7 installation disc.


Part 1: About Windows 10 Recovery Disc

In the past, a system recovery disc was provided when the computer left the factory. Users can use the disc to format hard disks, reinstall system and install software. The Windows system image built in the disc can be used to factory reset the system when attacked by virus, Trojan or the other issues. All the third-party applications and data are removed after the factory reset. Now, the computer suppliers place the system image into the hidden partition of the drive. If you are a Windows 10 user, you can create a recovery disk by yourself.
Note: The Windows 10 recovery disk cannot back up your personal files, data and the installed applications. If you want to use the disk, please remember to back up the data or transfer them to the other computers. In addition, the computer data should be backed up at schedule in case that it is accidentally lost.

Part 2: Back up Computer at Schedule

If you cannot boot or repair your computer, you should try the recovery disc. But your personal files and data will be removed when you use the disc. To avoid such situations, you should back up data at schedule. Here are two ways, Renee Becca and OneDrive.

1. Use Renee Becca

Renee Becca is a good choice for backup. It offers multiple backup plans for different targets, such as system, partitions, hard disks, files and drives. The software can quickly process the data at the speed of 3,000MB/min. Besides, users can formulate the auto backup schedule so that the backup can be updated from time to time. Windows 10/8.1/8/7/Vista/XP are available.

2. Online Backup via OneDrive

In addition to Renee Becca, you can back up files via OneDrive. OneDrive is the online platform where you can store data. Users can download the files from the cloud to any devices (i.e. smartphone, tablet PC and computer) once they log in OneDrive with their Microsoft accounts. 5GB free storage space is offered to each Microsoft account. By default, OneDrive backs up desktop, files, images and folders. However, OneDrive should work under the network. If the network is slow, the files will be hard to back up to the cloud.

① Click at the OneDrive icon or search the application from the Start menu. Then, follow to click [More] > [Settings].

② In the tab [Backup], click [Manage backup].

Part 3: How to Create Windows 10 Recovery Disk?

When you back up the files well, you can create the Windows 10 recovery disk.
Note: The following steps are suitable for the situation that Windows can be started up normally.

① First, insert the blank CD/DVD into the computer and wait for system recognition.

② Search [Control Panel] at the task bar.

③ Click on [Back up and Restore (Windows 7)].
④ Click on [Create a system repair disc].
Finally, select a CD/DVD to create the disc.
TipsIf the computer is not normally bootable, you can use the recovery disc to solve the problem. When you get into the Troubleshoot, you can select [Restore from the drive]. Then, the Windows system will be reinstalled, and all applications and data will be removed. Of course, you can select the other repair schemes in Advanced Options, such as system restore, command prompt, system image restore, startup settings, even select to go back to the previous build.
TipsWhat is Windows 10 recovery drive? What is different between the recovery disc and the drive?

To create a Windows 10 recovery drive, you should place the installation program into the USB drive beforehand. Both of the recovery disc and the drive can repair the system issues and the startup problems. You have no need to create two recovery media at the same time. However, if the computer cannot boot from the recovery drive, please try the recovery disc.

Differences between the USB drive and disc:

● The USB drive is portable and easy to save.

● The USB drive process data much quickly than the disc.

● The USB drive is available in many devices while the CD driver is not built in most of the latest computers.
