I upgraded to Win 10 Pro.  I created a boot disc, repair disc.

Now, I'd like to be able to recover from a system crash. How do do I create a recovery disc with the win system on it?

Your best option is to create HDD image.


Acronis True Image: http://www.acronis.com/ - not free, but the best

Free alternatives:
- Macrium Reflect: http://www.macrium.com/ReflectFree.asp
- DriveImage XML: http://www.runtime.org/driveimage-xml.htm (tutorial: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/tutorial160.html)
- Paragon Drive Backup: http://www.paragon-software.com/home/db-express/

I use Macrium. It is free, quick and easy.

I personally use Macrium Free. DriveImage XML is limited as it's images cannot be restored to an unpartitioned drive while Macrium's can. It may also have trouble imaging the new UEFI/GPT disks and it does not have an option to create a bootable Restore disk. You can also Mount a Macrium Image to a virtual drive to explore it's contents and copy out any file you may need.


Another free option you can look at is Aoemi Backupper Standard (Free)

Windows 10 also have the System Image Backup option like Windows 7 and Windows 8.



Doesn't have all the feature of some of those programs but it works ok for many users.
