I made a recovery USB drive after installing Windows 10 in my dell. I now have installed the windows anniversary 1607 update. I thought that I had 30 days like after installing Windows 10. well, the time allowed has passed and thankfully I've had no problems with it. My question is, do I need to redo a recovery USB drive with the new update?

 

thank you

It might be a wise move.
If you use the old recovery USB then you would still have to download and install the "anniversary" update... its a big download,and sometimes the install can go wrong...
So to sum up it would be well worth while considering your back up position..... if it was my machine i would have some good disc images as well!

I do have another question.  how can I do a recovery drive into a disc instead of a usb drive,  last recovery drive I made, windows would only d/load it to a usb drive.  I hope my question is understandable....

You can change boot order of devices within BIOS setup  utility place whichever device you want to boot from to first boot device.

Create a recovery drive into a disc should be the same as you do with USB. :huh: If it can not load indeed, you may create bootable disc via some third-party tool if you need.
