    No backup app can, backup the Windows 8 install after the update to 8.1.

    Some OEM manufacturer's Recovery apps, will only use USB3 Pen drives.

    Try using a USB3 Pen drive or DL DVD's.

    Check how many DL DVD's you need first, as my Grandkids SONY used 3 DL DVD's or 4 DVD's, or 1 USB3 16gb drive.
