Personally, based on some recent statements by Microsoft that they are deprecating their own recovery tools, I am disinclined to depend on their backup and recovery solutions in Windows 10 over the long term.
Were I you I would strongly consider looking at third-party backup and recovery options. Two easy-to-use, and free for home users, options are EaseUS ToDo Backup and AOMEI Backupper. Both of these require you to create a recovery disc related to the product itself much like you're creating for the Windows built-in utilities, and it's every bit as simple to create and, I'd say, they're both simpler to use.

. . . the presumption of innocence, while essential in the legal realm, does not mean the elimination of common sense outside it. The willing suspension of disbelief has its limits, or should.
