Create a recovery disk on a USB stick

Hi folks

A friend of mine has a Acer mini PC which doesn't have a DVD drive only USB ports. It occurred to me that if things went wrong it would be difficult to troubleshoot. I would like to create a recovery dick on a USB Stick. Windows will only create to a DVD drive. It would be for Windows 7 Home Premium.

Apologies if this has be posted before...
