Lenovo USB Recovery Creator is unreliable

2018-09-28, 12:32 PM

I own a number of Lenovo laptops. I have found that the Lenovo USB Recovery Creator tool is extremely unreliable - it's always failing right near the very end of the process. Creating the USB recovery key is painfully slow, so when it fails near the end (after a user has been waiting for approximately 2 hours), it's very frustrating.

 

I have tried several different brands of USB keys, and have tried using each of the USB ports in my T470p. I have also disabled power saving features (like "suspend after 10 minutes" etc...).

 

Why is it so flaky? Is there a workaround? Any chance of providing a fix in the near future?
