I just did this, and it works:

In Windows 11, Start -> Recovery -> Create Recovery USB  (to make a 32gb USB stick)

In Linux (vmware in my case):-

dd if=/dev/sdb bs=8225280 of=Windows_Recovery.img

Mount the ventoy USB into linux, and copy the "Windows_Recovery.img" file onto it.


TaDa!! (tested works) - I can now "restore my windows" (and run the recovery tools etc) from my external SSD!
