    • You may change UAC to maximum.
    • As for "Disk Imaging Backup", You may add Macrium Reflect Free or AOEMI Backupper, both are free and reliably.
    • Consider also to run manual backups of important data to external devices, and/or in cloud services.
    • As for "Virus and Malware Removal Tools", You may add: MalWareBytes Free, EmsiSoft Emergengy Kit and HitManPro Free. Currently ZAM3 is not that good as it was in the past...
    • As for "Web Privacy", You may add uBlock Origin or AdGuard AdBlocker extension to Your browsers.
    Please kindly reflect Your changes editing Your config, and announcing them here, thanks for sharing :giggle:

    You may want to investigate larger external drives. I'm located in Australia and, I've seen 4TB external drives around the place for about $140.

    I generally split the drive into a couple of partitions, sometimes more. I keep full system images in one partition and use the other for other storage.

    Nice setup with your machine!

    Cheers,
