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
