Best way of creating Win8 Recovery without CD?

Ultrabooks don't usually have CD/DVD drives so I'm wondering what the best way is to create a recovery USB or whatever or should I create it as an image I then burn on from another computer to a DVD and connect externally if needed? Should I be using the default Windows 8 program for doing so or something else?

I would prefer to stick with USB only and to create one so that it has the stuff that's currently on the laptop (the OS + usual bloatware + basic programs like firewall/antivirus, browser, WMP, XBMC, and a few personal files).

If this is for a laptop you bought with a pre existing win8, you could just do it fomr the start menu under the manfactors name. (Maybe)

While it might not be exactly what you're looking for, the USB tool will allow you to create a Windows USB bootable drive: http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/...usbdvd_dwnTool
