System restoration backup (initital)

Dear experts,

I purchased a new WINDOWS10 HP laptop.

The vendor advised me to take the OS (Windows 10) backup.

I am attaching the pictures of the drive.

Kindly advice how to take the backup on a flash memory. Can I put a pw to the flash memory.

Thank you

I think the Vendor is talking about this. That backs up Windows to a USB key.

Another way to do this, in the event of a failure, is to reload Windows from the Microsoft Media Creation Link. That will always have the current version and works wiht your License on the Microsoft Licensing server

Hi John, he was mentioning that back-up can be used to reinstall the OS (windows10) if the version in my laptop gets corrupt for any reason.

Kindly guide how to take a OS backup on my USB.

There is really not much point in backing up Windows itself because the download is readily available. So concentrate on backing up data that could be lost in the event of a crash.
