Slideshow: Use System Image Recovery tool to restore your hard disk

In Windows 8, the System Repair disc is the same as the Recovery Drive

When the System Image creation procedure is complete, you'll be prompted to create a System Repair disc, as shown in Figure G. However, as you may remember, a System Repair disc is the same as the Recovery Drive and if you have already created a Recovery Drive, you can just click No and you will be notified that the backup completed successfully.

Now that you have a System Image backup, you are ready for an emergency situation.
