  1. The Recovery Option is not available because MS says “This option is no longer available because your PC was updated more than 10 days ago.” This must be new math because there are updates & upgrades to 21H1 dated June 16, 2021

  2. If it shows more than 10 days for you then try out other winRE options (Windows Recovery Environment with Blue Screen). Tap on the Restart button from Start Menu while pressing the Shift key to launch the Recovery options. Navigate to options Troubleshoot > Advanced options > Go back to previous build AND follow the on-screen instructions. I am also updating the post right away with this new option to revert the Windows 10 updates.
