    Windows 7 File Recovery


    I used this to create a system image which it did without any problem. I was then asked to create a system repair disk. I put a blank disk into the drive and told it to create ... the result was the following message.

    I had no problem creating a system repair disk with Win 8 CP and still have it but I cannot do the same in Win 8 RP.

    Any ideas and also can I use the disk I created with Win 8 CP with Win 8 RP or not?

    Same problem, same error here with the RP. Google search shows it to be fairly widespread.
    Has anybody on here created a repair disc with the RP??

    Not sure why you would want it - the exact same repair options are on the install.iso

    Where is your hidden Recovery folder?

    Is it on the root of win8 rp drive?

    Install was on a flash drive which I used for another task.
    I thought it would be quicker to just create a recovery disc on cd.
    Which I could keep to one side.
    recovery folder is on a external hard drive.
    I created another usb install disc and did a dummy run 15 mins and all OK.
    But still cannot create a restore disc in RP

    Problem Solved: follow brinks excellent tutorial Create a System Repair Disc and also uninstall /disable any third party security software that may be impeding the process.
