    Backup and restore Windows 8 with RecImg Manager

    Never mind the fact that Windows 8 isn't out yet; RecImg Manager is a backup and recovery tool made specifically for the upcoming OS, and it's available today.

    Windows 8 is said to be arriving sometime in October, but that hasn't stopped Slimware Utilities from releasing its brand-new W8-specific PC-imaging program today.

    RecImg Manager is a free program that's designed to back up and restore your entire Windows 8 Operating System and other installed software, without affecting your personal files. Whether your system has been corrupted by malware or you're dealing with other kinds of system errors, the ability to "refresh" your computer is one that shouldn't be overlooked.

    They have done a good job of the GUI .

    The advantage over simply running built in recimg is it restores programs. It suffers the same drawbacks, tho.

    It is hellish slow.
    It does not backup your User directory.

    Much better to use a 3rd party imaging app. Plenty of good free ones around.

    I notice that it's not a Metro app but they have mimicked the Metro UI.
