@whs,

You could scan your asus with this:http://ubuntuone.com/p/BY7/

save non-ms drivers into a folder. It may pick up the sd card thing driver.

Once you have it, can be added to your macrium pe.

You have to click BACKUP, then scan current system at the bottom.

It only takes a swecond, then non MS drivers are already ticked by default.

Click Backup Now and select where to save them

No.

Not sure if it only picks up things that are currently plugged in.

It can, and do so very well, but I don't recommend it unless your machine has only one drive with one partition. If your OS and data are on separate partitions, it is better to back them up separately. If you have very much data in its own partition, you would be better off using MR to image the OS partitions and use a folder/file syncing program, such as SyncToy or FreeFileSync (I prefer the latter). A folder/file syncing program is much faster for backing up data.

You have to bare with me, with this 8.1 stuff.
If I use the "Standard" version, then I won't need another program to take care of the files and folders ?

You don't even need the standard version. Any image from the free version can be mounted (just double click on the image file) and from there you can pick any data.

It is good practice to make a seperate partition for the data. If you image that on an as needed basis, your data will be safe. I always image to 2 different disks (I alternate). That gives extra security in case one disk fails at the same time as the system. It is unlikely, but makes me feel better.
