I know that it's possible to backup your OS to a thumbdrive for recovery purposes, my question is: is it possible to put more than one OS on one thumbdrive so I can recover for multiple computers with multiple OS's from one thumbdrive or does each one need its own thumbdrive.

Support, not Discussion. Presume Windows 10 since initial post was in Windows 10 Discussion

You can have installation media for several versions of Windows on one flash drive, but you are going to need software to select the version you wish to installed.  With flash drives being so inexpensive now I would suggest purchasing a flash drives so that you can create individual flash drives for each version you want to use.  In the long run this is the easiest way to go about this.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
