    Back up "own" folders after 8.1


    How do I backup my "own" folders (not those in Libraries) after 8.1?
    I believe the W7 backup function will be removed in 8.1.

    You might want to research the win 8.1 commands;
    wbAdmin -help
    wbAdmin start backup -help

    I just had a look at this, looks good. I assume it will need wbAdmin Recovery to use the backup?
