I was making a recovery media of my Windows OS on a flash drive. I don't remember now whether I checked the boxes for boot and data media, but I do have files in my flash drive after recovery. It took almost an hour to make a recovery media. Now I can't re-do the process as you can do it once. Do I have both medias in my flash drive? Can I install it with a new internal Hard Drive?

I cannot redo it, as once can have recovery once only. It does not show me any options to make another recovery now –  Mona Sep 9 '13 at 16:23
