    create a small 4GB partition at end of drive, place setups sources\install.wim in it
    register install.wim as recoveryimage

    Do you know how to export drivers? using Dism..

    That's one of those things I've thought about doing but just haven't bothered with. I haven't done anything with DISM, not yet anyway. I do believe there is a tutorial on how to create your own custom recovery partition. Refresh Windows 8 - Create and Use Custom Recovery Image I may have a go at it sometime.

    recimg -CreateImage C:\RefreshImage

    it's just one command and a folder

    Hi
    I finally backup from all my data, And I have done factory reset.
    I sincerely thank from "KYHI" and "alphanumeric" for help me.

    I installed ASUS app and after those I upgraded to Windows 8.1
    Now all thing's work properly

    Now I want to make a "Recovery" or "Restore" point(or File) from all driver, setting, register and... from new windows before install my program(for use if windows will damage in future)
    How I can do it?

    go ahead and create your second partition after C which will your D - Data drive

    then run this command

    recimg -CreateImage D:\RefreshImage\Cleaninstall

    then everytime you want to make another backup image just change the last part to a new folder name -

    recimg -CreateImage D:\RefreshImage\Cleaninstall
    recimg -CreateImage D:\RefreshImage\folder1
    recimg -CreateImage D:\RefreshImage\folder2
    etc

    Here is a utility that will manage and create your refreshimage(S)

    Thank you KYHI

    After reset a laptop, Restore partition has been deleted.(20GB with 16GB data)
    And a drive called "Recovery image" instead of which it is made.(with 13.8 GB data)
    Why is the way?

    because the Partitions where resized by the Bare Metal Reset Feature.. It removed your production line folders and resized the partition to just the recovery image size.. It did what it should have.. And you gained a little free space..
