What are my options on this machine to make a recovery disk and backup in case of a hard drive failure? Also noticed OneKey 4.0 won't recognize external hard drives greater than 1TB. Why?

I understand your concern and will assist you regarding the same. But please let me know the OS (Operating System) installed in the computer, so that I can provide the exact information regarding the concern.
Hope to hear back soon

Thanks for your reply Shiva. A simple question for many in this group but for someone who has jumped from XP to 8.0 there is a lot to learn. The K430 desktop is a year old with Windows 8.0 64 bit preinstalled with a restore partition and boots in UEFI mode. There are no instructions in the manual on how to make a boot disk.
Since my 1st post I found that I can do this with Windows 8 Restore and made a USB flash boot drive with the restore partition copied to it. Size was about 10Gig. Previously I used OneKey to make an image of the main drive on a 1TB USB hard drive, size about 500Gig. Is this this good enough to restore the system and all the files and programs in case of a hard drive failure?
I think I will also purchase backup software like Acronis True Image as OneKey 4.0 is limited on what it can do including using disks larger than 1TB

I understand your concern. Hence, the best way to backup is by backing up your personal data stored in the computer and then “Create a USB recovery drive” using a flash drive which contains only the OS (Operating System) backed up files.
Do post us back for further queries.

Check the user manuals on the support site for your machine.
V2 says little about OKR. V1 has better info.
How many partitions on external drive > 1 tb. humm. okr probably only supports 1 partition on external?
