How To Use System Restore In Windows 8
http://www.vikitech.com/11302/system-restore-windows-8

"Windows 8, like previous versions of Windows has a feature called “System Restore”. System Restore allows you to restore your computer to a previous state quickly and easily without losing any of your files or personal settings. Sometimes when you install programs or drivers, they may affect some of the system settings and prevent other programs from working correctly. You can use System Restore to revert these settings back to their previous state.

Note: System Restore can not be used to back up your personal files, it only backs up settings and registry values."

Click "Set up Backup" on the top right side of the Windows 7 File Recovery pop-up window. It should work the same way as it did with Windows 7 to make system image backups.
