Andreas,

It might be an issue with us not getting access to the USB for some reason. Could you use the built-in support email system to log a case so we can investigate?

Also please post the case ID here so we can keep track of it

Thanks

Here is the solution that worked for me from the support team:

Disable anti-virus or uninstall it.

Install Windows ADK. Here are the steps:

- Download and install Windows 8.1 ADK Deployment Tools from there - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/downloa ... x?id=39982
(For Windows Server 2012 R2.... the bottom 4 options are unnecessary)

- Open a "Run" window by typing Win + R key combination.

- Type regedit and click enter.

- Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE --> Software --> Veeam --> Veeam Endpoint Backup.

- Then create a DWORD value called "ForceUseAdkForRecoveryMedia" (without quotes) and set the value to 1

- Restart the Veeam Endpoint service (or reboot the PC) and run again.

- Run Create Recovery Media Wizard once again to create a new recovery image.
