How to backup using onekey recovery and where to place image

2013-10-20, 16:21 PM

Hi, I've never backed up anything before. I'm using Lenvo Y510p and trying to backup my computer before I upgrade to windows 8.1 from windows 8.


I open up onekey recovery, and the "image size" is 80gb!! Is that normal?


Secondly, I don't understand where I'm supposed to store this. If there's a problem and my hard drive gets fried or corrupted, what was the point of creating a back up? My USB isn't nearly large enough to contain that image. What should I do?


Is there a specific place on the hard drive I'm supposed to put it? Default tries to put it into D drive (my SSD that came with laptop) and that's only 22gb.
