Backup of an operating system is much more serious task than backup photos from a vacation. Even if you made 5000 photos (10000, if you were vacationing with a beautiful girl), all of them quite easily fit on your USB flash drive. But in the case of Windows 8 disk image backup, you can forget about the flash drive - an external hard drive capacity may be not enough!

Under these conditions, a full Windows 8 backup in the “classic” form of copying or archiving starts to be a very large and time-consuming. However it’s not a reason to worry about. Try differential backup software - Handy Backup!
