Now that Windows 10 version 1803 is largely rolled out to everyone. We suggest making a new USB stick with the installer for Windows 10 so that in case your rig is not bootable you have a recovery option.
While Windows 10 is very stable, there are times when drivers and other problems want a clean install. There is also the time when the SSD or the hard disk is damaged and had to be replaced.
Gamers are also well acquainted with driver problems, especially with recent games. Gripes over dual video card support are also plentiful. Hardware is expensive so using a clean install of Windows is the best way to reproduce a fault.
While you are at it with a fresh recover USB stick, it’s not a bad idea to use a USB hard disk connected to the Wi-Fi box and use that with Windows backup (File history).
While an 8GB USB stick is enough, the faster USB 3.1 sticks at 16GB and above are a lot easier to use. Over time we should mention that the Windows ISO has become larger and larger. Most of the apps are not on the ISO but are installed from the internet.
