How to create a System Image Backup in Windows 8.1


One of the first things we should do after getting a new PC or upgrading to a new version of Windows is create a System Image Backup in case a hard drive failure or some other disaster makes it necessary to re-install Windows.

The process of creating a System Image in Windows 8.1 is a bit different than in Windows 7, but it’s actually quite easy to do. Here’s how:

1 – Make sure your backup media (external USB hard drive, etc.) is attached to your PC.

2 – While on the Desktop, right-click on the Start button, them click Control Panel.

3 – Click System and Security.

4 – Click File History.

5 – Click System Image Backup in the lower left-hand corner of the window.

6 – Follow the prompts as required in order to initiate and complete the System Image backup.

That’s all there is to it. Now you’ll have a System Image to restore in case something ever happens to your Windows 8.2 installation
