    As you may know already, Microsoft decided to put back in Windows 10 the full Windows Backup function that was removed in Windows 8.
    Anyone tried to backport the functionality back into Windows 8.1?

    I upgraded one test machine but obviously I won't upgrade the main machines til it matures more.
    So nobody thought about extracting Windows Backup files from 10 and transplanting them into 8?
    Is it possible to extract the files from a dism package?
