Yes, you can copy the recovery drive to another drive. Here are 2 solutions for you to follow.

The first one is to use the Windows 10 built-in function to achieve that. The detailed steps are shown below.

Step 1. Connect the new drive you prepared to your Windows PC

Step 2. Enter Recovery Drive on the search box and open the app

Step 3. The Create Recovery Drive window will pop up

Step 4. Hit Next and choose your drive as the recovery drive 

Step 5. Click Next and confirm a warning message

Step 6. Hit Create and wait for the recovery to be ready

The second method will rely on third-party clone software, like EaseUS Disk Copy.

Compared with the Windows built-in function that takes 1 to 4 hours to successfully copy the recovery drive, EaseUS Disk Copy ensures the fastest cloning speed and lets you clone your entire drive or selectively clone part of the partitions, system, or files.

Here is a simple tutorial for you to copy the recovery drive to another drive with EaseUS Disk Copy.

Step 1. Download this software and launch it

Step 2. Connect the new drive to your computer

Step 3. Hit the Disk Mode Option on EaseUS Disk Copy

Step 4. Choose the recovery drive as the source disk and another drive as the target disk

Step 5. Click the Proceed button to start the cloning now
