Cannot find backup software!

    Cannot find backup software!


    Windows 7 had a back up and restore application, including creating a system image and recovery DVD. I see nothing under Windows 8 (And I've really looked, but I will be glad to admit that I'm wrong if I am!) Do I need to purchase back up software ? Please advise! Thank you

    Please forgive me. I just checked my E-Mail (which I should have done first). I also see that my last night's scheduled backup was executed after querying my backup media.
    Thank you, again.
