    Windows 8.1


    Thanks. That's exactly the screen I get.

    Having read the most recent links here, it would seem then that it's impossible to use Windows Easy Transfer, and I'll have to do it all manually (which I wanted to avoid, as it's a pain)?

    You can still use software. The free Macrium Reflect it has a backup files/folders feature and a restore. Macrium Software
    You would still need to tell the software which folders (i.e. Documents, Pictures, etc.) to backup.
