This is what the Dell Support System says about the USB flash drives issue:

NOTE: Currently factory backups are only supported on certain Windows
8 certified USB flash drives. The program will not detect the drive in case the flash drive is recognized by the system as a fixed disk. Try a different USB flash drive if this happens.

However, it's not specified what the supported flash drives are. Use the following page to learn more about it:

You are not able to do this because the u want to make the recovery of windows 10 but the recovery drive u have in your pc contained windows 8.1 files.
Rather than this u can make a system restore disk in external hdd or disks.
