Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but as documented in this HP post, if your PC came preinstalled with the original version of Win10, after you do the November Update, the Recovery Manager no longer works:  HP PCs - Updating to the Latest Version of Windows 10 (Fall 2015 Update) | HP® Customer Support

 

However, if what you want is a way to do recovery, all is not lost.

 

Instead, you can use a third party product known as Macrium Reflect.

 

Macrium Reflect (MR) provides a FREE version that can be used to image and restore partitions or entire drives.

What I recommend is the following:
1) Download and install Macrium Reflect (MR)
2) Run MR and choose the option: "Create an image of the partition(s) required to backup and restore Windows" to write a full backup to an external drive or USB stick
3) Use the option to create a boot USB stick or CD

My experience is that MR, when using the High Compression option, typically can compress the saved image file to about 50% of the USED space in the OS partition.  This means if you have an 80GB OS partition, and 40GB is used, MR only needs about 20GB to store the image file.

I use this all the time and it typically takes less than 10 minutes to do the image backup and about the same time or less to do a restore.  

Plus, MR has the option to Add a Recovery Boot Menu entry.  This allows you then to boot into WinRE, and you can then use that to do a restore -- when you can't boot into Windows!

NOW, you have the means to restore a full working system from the external drive or USB stick in only a few minutes.

 

Good Luck
