what type of cd do i need to create system recovery disks? DVD-R, DVD Plus R, DVD+R DL?

HP Pavilion Notebook - 15t-ab1
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I want to create a system recovery disk set in case I need to restore my computer some day. When searching for cd's I came across so many I'm not sure which one I need, ie.  DVD-R, DVD Plus R, DVD+R DL? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi:

 

This is the latest support document I can find regarding the type of media needed to create recovery DVD's.

 

It appears you can use the following types...(DVD-R, DVD-R DL, DVD+R, or DVD+R DL)

 

HP recommends you use blank DVD+R discs. Use a name-brand label from a manufacturer you trust, as these recovery DVDs are very important.
