ASUS recovery disk is very useful when you’re having problems with your computer. Learn how to create one in Windows 10 efficiently from this page.

Why do you need ASUS recovery disk?

ASUS makes a wide range of products such as desktops, laptops, netbooks, mobile phones, networking equipment, etc. Among all the products, ASUS laptops are the most popular for their attractive designs and powerful performance. Nevertheless, errors occur sometimes. Here is a frustrating scenario shared by one ASUS laptop user:

“Hi, I have an ASUS laptop - kv55v. A few days ago the Windows 10 auto updates (to creators update I think) resulted in me losing my keyboard and touchpad. Panic ensued...then googled...tried several suggestions. None worked.

Tried to go back to a restore point, but that failed because of a Microsoft bug. Panic again....but google is my friend so eventually found a way to execute the recovery. So got my laptop to a working state again. Only took 2 days.lol.”
