Which recovery image should I download?

Jump to solution

I am trying to download a recovery image for my Inspiron 15 7580, but there are four different options, with no differentiation whatsoever:

Any hint on which one I should choose? It doesn't seem reasonable to download 20GB just to discard 15GB right afterwards πŸ˜›

You can download the file with the highest capacity. 5.57 GB in this case.

Thanks. So I can just assume the differences between them are irrelevant? That works, surely, but it wouldn't hurt to show more info about the images on the download page -- after all, what is the point of hosting four different 5 GB images if we are supposed to randomly pick one? πŸ˜‰

Welcome to the Dell Community  @Rogue Two 

Its been awhile but I remember only 2 options???

I would like to see the 4 options???

But until the eClerx team approves the images only you can see them.

Just seems odd that a Moderator cannot approve images???

Best regards,

U2

Thanks for reaching out @U2CAMEB4ME . The screenshot shows there are four nearly identical options, with similar names (three are named "Windows 10 Professional. 64-Bit", and the other one is "Windows 10 Pro. 64-Bit") and no way of telling them apart aside from their sizes. This is obviously confusing and doesn't help at all...
