Purchased a new Dell win10 a couple of days ago and it needed 16GB to make recovery disk. The only one I had was my 500 GB external drive. I knew everything would be deleted which was ok but I thought it would still be useable on my old desktop. NOT the case. I can use it on my new Dell to load other stuff onto it but can't go back and fetch photo file (which is large) off my old desktop. Can this action be fixed? I'll go buy a 32G jump drive if so. If not, stupid me.
