factory recovery media hard drive

I've used an external hard drive as 'factory recovery media' for my Dell PC:

click here I use the spare space on the drive for storing other files?

Thanks a lot, Laurence

Yes you can

The recovery media creator will have made a boot partition (do not delete or add files into this partition) and a drive image on your external drive.. It shouldn't be a problem adding files but personally I would create another partition on the drive and use that for saving your files to.

Or just get an external drive.
