    I have installed Windows 8.1 RTM (upgraded from 7 via 8), and I can't find the backup anywhere. The closest I can find is file history, which seems to have functionality drastically stripped from it.

    I like having the ability to backup certain folders, and not back up others. On all my computers, I like having external drives just to backup the irreplaceable stuff. I can't seem to find a way to do that in Windows 8.1.

    Am I missing something, or has Microsoft just completely went off the deep end this time?
