    After refreshing my 8.1 laptop I used a system image but


    my laptop is exactly how it was after I did the refresh and Windows has not been restored from a System Change. I did Settings\change pc settings\update and recovery\recovery\advanced set-up using the Toshiba portable Hard Drive that I had created the system image on. I went into File Explorer and opened it and on the system image was Toshiba STOR.E PARTNER\Nero BackIt up 12 Essentials\Windows Image Backup. Did I make an error creating the System Image. .

    Did you do a Reset or Refresh?

System image on 8 in Performance & Maintenance
On Windows 7 it was easy to create a system image. But, I can't find a way to do it on 8. Does anyone know how? Also, some members have said that they like a third party utility called Macrium. Is that one better? Thanks
