It is a good idea to create a recovery disk from your USB. That way, you don't have to worry about losing system data even if your PC experiences a hardware failure or other issues. You can make a Windows 10 recovery disk from USB like this:

  1. 1. Search for Create a recovery drive in the search box and select it.
  2. 2. Select Back up system files to the recovery drive and then select Next.
  3. 3. Connect your USB drive to your PC, select it, and click Next.
  4. 4. Select Create and wait patiently for files to be copied to the USB.

See, it's easy to make a recovery disk from your USB. The only bad thing is that if you have a lot of files, the backup will take a long time.

After making your recovery disk, you can reinstall Windows 10 whenever you want.
