Why are there NO definitive answers to how to get or create recovery media for upgrading to a new ssd hdd?

WTF the Asus back tracker wants a fricken USB device to back up a recovery image to? I just bought a fricken stack of DVD's I don't have USB devices larger then 16g.

The AI Recovery software isn't compatible under Windows 8, that's why the Backtracker tool is used. You could also image the whole drive using the Windows system image tool to create an image of your drive; that's what an Asus rep has told us in the past in lieu of the AI Recovery software.

You can use Macrium Reflect Free (http://www.macrium.com/reflectfree.aspx) to clone your whole Windows OS to your SSD. (supports GPT partittions)
It's pretty easy and straight forward, just follow the step by step instructions.
Many here on the forum have used it with great results!

Hope this will help?
