    Powershell backup

    I see that W8 has a powershell routine to do an image backup. Has anyone played around with this??

    Wavy,

    That's just using PowerShell to launch the builtin windows backup routine. HTH

    But its not got a GUI in W8, and apparently it is an 'image'.( I had thought it was not when told about it, but I guess I am wrong.
