Hi

I just bought a surface pro from eBay and it seems the previous owner deleted the recovery data to free up space but did not include the usb recovery drive. Question is can I use a usb recovery drive created on my Windows 8 pc to do factory reset?

Thanks guys.

Is there another solution you could suggest? If not I will probably send it back as there also seems to a problem with the screen and the auction described as fully working very good condition no mention of a problem, it was only after the auction had finished he messaged to say he had a problem performing a factory reset so I asked if it meant it was an issue with the surface as from what I could see on the Microsoft site the reset was a pretty straight forward process (this is before I'd researched and discovered the recovery data 'mod' people do) he replied: 'no issues just needs the disks that came with the surface originally'. and from what I can gather it didn't come with any disks...

Sorry to go on a little there!! :)
