New here hope someone can share their experience with making a backup image & restoring it

I have made a copy of my recovery partition on to a usb flash drive with no problems
So if the worst happens i can restore back to the factory settings windows 8 pro
but now i`ve done all the updates via windows updates for windows 8 pro & wish to create a backup image that includes all those updates
Before i update to Windows 8.1 Pro via the store
I know how to boot the system using the volume + - keys plus power key to go into the system menu to turn on or off secure boot

I have Acronis True Image 2014 ,but after some searching on-line via Google it appears that Macrium Reflect Seems more able to do the job
So i download the free version & created a boot able USB drive this seem straight forward
Then i plug in my boot able USB drive into my surface pro & using the volume key & power on key it did indeed boot to my USB drive & the Macrium Menu Appear & it show I think 4-5 partition including the recovery partition
Now which ones do i need to make backup I know i can ignore the recovery partition as as i said earlier I`ve already have that
As anyone achieved this process & manage to make a image of their Surface Pro which can be restore
If so please explain
Thank You
