    That one works fine.

    The other one inherited from Win7 got removed.

    Thanks for that... however my apologies that I'm being dumb today

    How do you get to that screen from 8.1 Control Panel? Or if not, how do you get there?
    (This screenshot is from 8.1 Pro Preview, running in a VM clean installed from the ISO, if that makes a difference.)

    The screenshot I posted is the Win7 recovery which doesn't exist anymore in 8.1.

    This is from what I recall after using the Preview for a short time:

    Use the new backup;
    Try the Recovery option in Control Panel or search for "backup". You can also search on Start Screen, then see found settings. The new backup should be also accessible from the Metro Control Panel (PC Settings).

    I don't have a 8.1 test setup for the moment but I'll test a VM tomorrow.

    And 'File History' or 'Recovery' don't include that.

    Recovery is still the best what is left due to the ability to create custom recovery image:
    Refresh Windows 8 - Create and Use Custom Recovery Image

    Backing up 8.1 with built in tools gets harder by the minute.
