It is great to have Windows system backup option in Windows 8. You can launch Windows backup tool for that follow:

Else, you can directly launch Windows backup option with "sdclt.exe" using Command Prompt.

With Windows Backup you will be allowed to have an image backup of full system or selected files & folders on network location or an external drive. You are also allowed to create system repair disc which can be used to repair & restore the system in any bootable situation.

2. Backup Windows 8 With File History

File History is the name of Windows 8 backup which can backup only those files which are available at user data locations i.e. libraries, desktop folder, contacts & favorites. To backup a random folder, you are supposed to add it to your libraries.

With the completion of process to setup File History, Windows will start saving copies of your files on a regular time basis. Files can be saved on a network or to an external drive automatically in the background.

In case you have used an external drive, File History will resume saving process when external drive is plugged in.
