Cannot Create Recovery DVDs Low Drive C: Disk Space

I cannot make a set of recovery DVDs because drive C: is low on disk space. Drive C is a 128GB SSD, so there isn't much space to begin with. I do have external USB drives. Can I use an external USB drive to make recovery DVDs?

Thanks, . . . JBrush

Re: Cannot Create Recovery DVDs Low Drive C: Disk Space

Hi, JBrush


The space left on your C: drive should not influence whether you can make recovery DVDs. Which program are you using to make recovery media? Also, can you take a screenshot of the error message that you are receiving and post it here?


Thanks in advance,
