    Saving System Image to Network in Windows 8

    In Windows 8 Home (the edition that came with my Dell XPS) there is no option to save System Image to Network, only to Disc or HD.

    Is this feature missing from 'Home' version only and is the option to save to Network available in W8 Pro like in W7?

    If so what is the best and cheapest way to upgrade (officially, not via torrents) to Windows 8 Pro?

    Use a different backup program, like Macrium Reflect Free or Acronis True Image $$$.
