Glen has an old Toshiba laptop running Windows 10. Recently, he bought a new SSD drive for it, and when he cloned the old drive, it wouldn't clone the recovery partition. Leo says it may be available to it because it's considered a separate drive. Don't do it partition by partition: just clone the entire drive. But the recovery partition isn't a traditional partition, so that may be why. But you can always download Windows 10 Media Creation Tool and use that on a thumb drive as your recovery.
Alan wants to know if having a recovery partition is a good idea. Leo says it is, right up to the moment the hard drive goes bad. Leo prefers to have an image on a USB key that he can blast on the hard drive when he needs it.
