Free is good.

From the Windows 10 "start" menu, find "Accessories". In there, you'll find a "Cleanup" utility, by Microsoft, to delete non-necessary files.

Such a disk is best used when your Windows system is a complete "mess", and you want to restore Windows to the way it was on the day that you first started using the computer.  This "recovery" may delete all your personal files -- you probably do *NOT* want that!   So, you probably do *NOT* want to use a "recovery disk".
