Windows 8.1 bootable device creation and system image backup

0 votes
Hi, I've bought an Acer V3-772G from Germany last month. It had Win 8 on it, German version. I've upgraded to Win 8.1 from Store and changed my Display Language to English UK after downloading the Language pack. The laptop came with Nero Backitup and Acer recovery management tools. On top of these there are Windows 8.1 tools: Create the recovery drive and system image Backup. Now which of the above 3 (Nero, Acer, Windows) is the best to recover from a complete WIN 8.1 crash (unable to boot)? Any other Windows tool I have missed? Is there a bootable DVD creation option in Win 8.1 ? Or they are just the USB option? Will I still be able to create the recovery drive if I've upgraded to Win 8.1 from Win 8? If yes, I can I use the USB drive to transfer other data as I don't want to block a 32 GB flash drive for a 3-6 GB recovery partition (of course I will not delete/ move anything the system has created on the USB). In the event OS crashes if I put the USB drive with recovery partition will the laptop 'see' it? Any BIOS changes needed to allow this? Any other comments you might have will be much appreciated, Thanks in advance, Roy
