    Default Backup and Restore

    "Backup and Restore" for windows 8 is not on the Control Panel as it was in Windows 7. Where is the "Backup and Restore" function for Windows 8. How can I backup and restore?

    That "Recimg" thing is just plain weird!

    Making a new restore point really ain't that hard. I completely documented that in another thread.
    Everything you need is already built in to Win-8.

    As for backing up the entire C: drive to a Restorable Image file, we've discussed that too, in great detail.
    Never rely on your OS to back itself up. Use a third party program that will boot up your PC from a CD or Flash Drive and backup your C: drive to a second partition or second Hard Drive.

    If you have to do a restore because your OS is unable to boot the PC, you need your restore program on a CD or Flash Drive anyway, so why even have it on the hard drive?

    Good Luck!
