Recovery discs that were created by using the Backup and Restore (Windows 7) app on devices that have installed Windows updates rolled out before 11/01/2022 are not affected by this mess and should start as expected.

Important – Any third-party backup or recovery applications are not known to be affected by this problem yet now.
