What happened to the Backup Function??

    Refresh and reset is ok, but it's far from a real image.

    I'll take a real system image any day. Restore or refresh is not the same thing.

    It seems that the Op didn't bother looking in the usual place for the Windows file recovery, hiding in the control panel isn't really hiding it's the same place it's always been.

    Again, there are ways to get your own image in there, but it's of course not supported officially.

    Looking around the Control Panel as you do, I wondered what did 'Windows 7 File Recovery' do. Turns out this is the full backup control panel item from Windows 7. Here you can do a regular backup with schedules etc. etc. just like you did in Windows 7.
