    To stop having to go back to Windows 8 every time you do a refresh is there a way of dumping the SS Hard drive to a large USB stick?

    Sure, no problem. I'm using Acronis True Image as imaging software to create backups.

    After getting a replacement device it was no problem to restore the backup from the previous device. I just had to perform the Windows activation and everything was up and running again.

    Good luck,
    Robert.
