Hi!

I was following the advice on how to create a system repair USB key.

All went well until I reached the following instruction:-

Copy the following file, in the source directory:
C:Recovery486aab42-cf02-11de-be22-c44fb1debe9dwinre.wim

I can't find this file, nor anything like it.

Can anyone help, please?

Thanks

The instruction seem to have deleted the back slashes. Here is a link to what I think are the correct instructions:

Thanks for the info. I had, in fact, worked out that the back-slashes were missing. I cannot find even C:\Recovery nor *.wim .

Thanks any way. I see there's another solution offered, so I'll try that!

I found this file in C;\Windows\System32\Recovery\
change view options to see all files and hidden system files then change permission of the recovery folder
