What does HP Recovery Media Creation tool do?

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

What exactly does it backup? It says I need 6 DVDs for backing up. Can't I use an extrenal hard disk?

hP Recovery Media is used to boot from and reinstall Windows and all original drivers/software-either on the current hard drive or a new one in the event of hard drive failure. It must be created on dvd or 32gb usb flash drive in order to be bootable.

If I lose the image created using that tool, I can download the drivers from HP site page for my laptop, right?
