After installing the Windows updates released January 11,
2022 or later Windows versions on an affected version of
Windows, recovery discs (CD or DVD) created by using the
Backup and Restore (Windows 7) app in Control Panel might be unable to start.

Recovery discs that were created by using the Backup and
Restore (Windows 7) app on devices which have installed
Windows updates released before January 11, 2022 are not
affected by this issue and should start as expected.

Note No third-party backup or recovery apps are currently
known to be affected by this issue

As always, you won’t have to do anything to get this latest update on your home computer as Windows Update will go out and get it for you. Business-based systems will download and install the update automatically just as long as policies are set up to allow this. You can also head to the Microsoft Update Catalog to download this update manually.
