My friend just purchased laptop with 8.1 operating system. I am looking for a video on how to create recovery of the operating system onto a flashdrive. c:drive shows 536 of 556 GB used, so no doubt a 32GB flashdrive should work. All we have added until after recovery disk (flashdrive) is made and also I read we could make a copy to a partition on hard drive. I looked at coulple youtubes, check others. Thanks mhoss
I apologize for all the confusion. What I was trying to say was the laptop is new and the c:drive shows that 20GB has been used, so I assumed that was how large the 8.1 operating system was and that is why I mentioned a 32GB flash for storage. I just want to copy the operating system image onto a flashdrive so if the computer would crash I could uninstall the crashed or corrupted operating system and reinstall the program I would have on the flashdrive. In this case I was wanting to use a flash because it would take 5 dvd-r 4.7 GB disc versus 1 flash.
I thought this image was called Recovery Disc which I had created when I purchased a laptop with windows 7 and did have to do a complete uninstall and reinstall using the dvd-r recovery disc's. I hope I have cleared- up confussion.
