    Macrium ( free and paid versions ) work just fine on 8.1, so does Aomei backupper ( free).

    Paragon 14 ( paid version ) works great too.

    Macrium do a free Windows 8 signed by Microsoft version.

    Thank you for downloading Macrium Reflect Free from CNET

    All the 3rd party Partitioning, Backup & Cloning software, which fully supports Windows 8/8.1, UEFI, GPT & Secure Boot, Which are signed by Microsoft. Look to work fine with Windows 8/8.1.

    I would say the best free software is Aomei backup & partitioning.
