I think I waited too long. I upgraded my new Asus m51AC to Win 8.1 updated drivers and added a few programs. As with most computers these days, it doesn't come with a restore disk. But now when I want to make a restore disk, it wants a 32 Gig instead of a 16 Gig USB thumbdrive. What gives? I assumed the Restore USB was just a copy of a hidden partition and no other data would be added to it. Is my only option to restore to factory setting and then make a Restore USB? Thanks for any answer.

I bought Lexar 32gig USB 3.0 Theses 3.0 flashdrives are fast! I hate to have it just gathering dust waiting for the off chance I may need it. I am going to research how to make a true restore disk (actual DVDs I can stick on the shelf). Then I'll feel confident erasing the restore partition on the hard drive or (more likely) erasing the flashdrive.

I am starting to look at Macrium Reflect... click here free (free is good!) and seems to be able to make true restore dvds.

Geeze years ago I remember thinking " whats this restore disk?! Wheres my copy of Windows XP!!!

Now they don't even include the restore disks.
