    Hello Ron,

    You wouldn't be able to Macrium Reflect since it's a desktop app as well.

    If you like, you could use the built-in File History feature for file backups, System Image for a Windows backup, and/or use custom recovery images.

    File History - How to Use in Windows 8

    System Image - Create in Windows 8

    Refresh Windows 8 - Create and Use Custom Recovery Image

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
