Re: need to create a recovery file on external Drive for my Windows 10 OS

is free, but it has not been updated since last year and I have not tested it with the new Anniversary release of Windows 10.  In either case, a third-party imaging utility might allow more flexibility and allow you to restore an image in situations where the Windows built-in System Image tool might not work.  Also, depending on how technically savvy you're feeling, a third-party imaging utility might eventually allow you to restore images without sighted assistance using the WinPE environment.

Subject: [TechTalk] need to create a recovery file on external Drive for my Windows 10 OS

Dear all,
I finished to install the probrams that I need on my Windows 10 OS – after reformatting it because of a lot of troubles and errors on the system.
My question:
Do I have on Windows 10 anniversarry update the option to create a backup and recover file that will go to my external tera Drive?
So I can in future, when I need it, to go to this file on the external drive and run it and it will erase what I have on my C: Drive and put this recovery instead?
I have partition C: and D: – so I need to create the backup and recovery file only for my C: Drive.
I mean something as Ghost.
I don’t have any experience doing it, so please try to help and explain it – so I can do it independently, without any sighted assistance.
Thanks much for your respond.
