    I am kinda confused. This doesn't work for Windows 8.1? If not, then what is my best route to do a backup on a 8.1 OS? I am trying to attempt to backup all my data and then install 8.1 Pro instead of just the standard 8.1. Any info is always appreciated!

    Hello TechyMom,

    Depending on what type of data it is, you could do a manual copy and paste to backup and restore it.

    Otherwise, you use a 3rd party backup program like Macrium Reflect, Acronis, etc...

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
