    I'm not certain of this, but it seems possible.
    No difference. Take the microSD and plug into a USB adapter.

    A high quality USB 3.0 flash drive would certainly offer faster recovery than using microSD, whether the card were inserted in the tablet's microSD port or in a USB adapter. Recovery could be 10 or more times faster.

    I was mainly suggesting that the Asus Backup utility might specifically look for the USB port. Since the microSD slot on the tablet is apparently not part of the standard USB device, it could be addressed differently. No idea if it is, just suggesting it could be.

    Agree on all counts.

    There seems a bit of confusing directions in all the great posts in this thread but after re-reading through entirely I come away with these summary facts.

    AsusBacktracker currently only works for 64G version and if used,
    1) creates a full recovery/refresh copy of the OS to a USB drive (a micro SD card will work but a BIOS boot order tweak is needed on restore)
    2) provides easy optional deletion of the recovery OS partition on the internal 64G drive. This is it's main purpose I believe.
    3) it does not provide for a full system image backup including drivers, programs, apps, settings, etc..

    Win 8.1
    1) allows for making multiple incremental restore points. Automatically or manually. These restore points are not for full OS or full image recovery and require that you can boot into Windows.
    2) provides for making a system recovery USB drive but some extra tricks are required to make it a bootable drive.

    Third party imagers such as True Image or Macrium Reflect and others...
    1) provide user selectable backup copy images of bootable OS only, full system image and restore, incremental system images and restore, etc.

    Does that summarize the options?

    Yup...pretty much sums things up.

    I know this is an old thread, but I have been screwing around with creating image files for my T100TA (64gb), as I wanted to give the Windows 10 Tech preview a try. I managed to create an image backup of my internal drive using Macrium Reflect free, using a USB rescue disk and another 64GB USB3 flash drive (both plugged into a USB2 hub).

    On a whim, I was curious whether you could boot from USB media plugged into an OTG cable via the micro-usb port on this device, and it DOES! This is a handy trick for me, since I can create/restore a backup now without the need for a hub. (Plug rescue drive into OTG adapter, and the drive containing the data into the USB3 port of the dock.

    NOTE: I haven't actually attempted to restore anything yet, but I created an image of my original setup, and a separate image of the Windows 10 install successfully using this approach...
