Symantec needs to respond to changes in operating systems in a timely manner.  To not be able to fully utilize SSR because incremental backups are not supported in Windows 8.1 nearly a year after it was released is a shame.  Windows 8.1 was first unveiled and released as a public beta in June 2013, it was released to manufacturing on August 27, 2013, and reached general availability on October 17, 2013,  We are now in May of 2014 and still do not have support of this OS.  This is a great product however without incremental backups, one is limited by the size of the destination HDD and thus the number of backups and depth of history of these backups.
