Recovery Management with NO DVD

Last response: in Computer Brands

Have just got a Easynote Butterfly Touch which has no DVD.

Unfortunately the PB Recovery tool will not let me choose any other option telling me I dont have an optical drive.
I have tried to access my DVD drive on my desktop and can read it but once again the PB tool will not let me access it.
IO thought I would just copy the Recovery Partition but In Computer Management it is greyed out and the only context menu is a useless help.
Thanks, Alan

OK, I have managed to make a copy of the Recovery Partition by changing its TYPE with a free program called Partition Wizard.

I gave it a Drive letter and can now view it in File Explorer. I plan to copy it to my PC with DVD Burner and create a back up.

Any ideas as to what the DVD should look like? Should I create with the Drive Letter or just its contents and I assume I would need to create an ISO.

As I cant create with PB Tool I have no idea what the contents of the DVD would need to look like.
