p2v or image

Would it be better to p2v or make an image of my pc (win 8.1) for backup purposes? I put a lot of time into configuring my computer and it would take a long time to reconfigure everything (computer settings, apps, etc,) if the hard drive ever crashed.
I do have hyper-v in my environment if that helps at all.
Thanks.

In my opinion you are better off making a backup image rather than a P2V to hyper-V.

For my money Symantec System Recovery (Desktop Edition) is probably one of the best products Symantec have ever done. It really does work well.

Plus you can take the backup and convert it to a virtual machine if you so wish.
