Lenovo Recovery to Flash Drive

I want to do a fresh install to a new SSD from my Lenovo Recovery but I get that message that I can only make one copy. Is there anyway to make another copy so I can do a fresh install?

 

I also want to make another copy to a flash drive so that I can have a backup incase something goes wrong.

NO

You only need one set of media. You can duplicated them as well. So you only need one recovery set.

JWall,

 

I'm not sure we understand what you mean here.  What was the first copy?

When I try to copy my recovery partition onto a flash drive it says that I can only do this once so I was wondering if there was another way to get it on my flash drive.

Did you already do it once?

Yes. I know I can only do it once I was just wondering if there was any way around this so I can back up my factory settings to my flash drive.

Re: Lenovo Recovery to Flash Drive

May I ask one more time:  what was the first time?

 

What have you already done?  What media have you already created?

Re: Lenovo Recovery to Flash Drive

Ok. Lenovo provides a recovery partition so that on boot you can restore the laptop to factory settings. They allow to to copy this recovery to a flash drive or disc so that you can boot from those if something goes wrong with your computer. I have copied the recovery to a flash drive once to restore the computer. I didn't know at the time that I could only do this once so I deleted the recovery off of the flash drive. I now want to copy the recovery again to a flash drive so that I can have a back up incase something goes wrong. Since I can only make one copy I am wondering if there is another way to get the recovery on a flash drive.

Re: Lenovo Recovery to Flash Drive

Would it be possible to clone the recovery partition and put it on the new SSD?
