I have a Flex 14 Ideapad having 25 GB of solid state disc as a different partition. Now I am thinking of creating a system recovery disc in this drive. However I do not see any option of choosing this drive in the dialogue for creating the receovery disc.
Could you please guide me as to how to create the recovery disc / partition for Flex 14 laptop on another drive on the computer itself.
Thank you in advance

You can use onekey recovery to make a image on another drive. It is highly recommended that it not be the local pc drive. You can also make a one time windows recovery. I suggest taking the time to do both, just in case. Possibly you're confused becaust the default Lenovo recovery is in its own partition? The manufacturers have been doing that for years to replace the winsdows disks you used to get with a new system. Putting it in a hidden partition just makes it harder (but not impossible) for intrepid users to accidentily delete it.

Thank you very much for your reply .
Initially I tried onekey recovery, however it does not have any option of taking backup on local drive, hence posted this thread.
The drive on which I want to use for this purpose is a SSD and not anyway connected with my normal partition (which is a HDD). Since both of them are seperate and the SSD of 25 GB capacity is lying idle, I thought of using it productively for this purpose.
If nothing is possible, then I have to use the external USB drive to create the recovery partition.

You don't need a seperate partition for a recovery file, it's just a file. If you have a drive connected to the system and it is recognized by Windows? Start Onekey recovery, chose backup and set that drive as the default path.
