Incase of hard drive failure, or OS problem, would a system image get my laptop going as new, and can I use a USB stick to do it? Thx

moved from Introductions. Based on the info in your profile, which states your OS is Windows 8.1, I moved the topic to Windows 8 forum. If your OS is not 8.1 please let us know so we can move to the correct forum.

If the hard drive fails, a system image will do very little in regards to "fixing" it.

If the OS becomes corrupt, the image will come in very handy indeed.

As for the process of creating a system image; Mr. Abrams has posted some info here.
