This setup configuration does not have a backup plan. We strongly recommend to add a backup solution for your data so that you can restore it in the case of an emergency. Backing up allows the recovery of data that has been lost due of a malware attack (eg. ransomware) or a hard disk crash. In such events you might lose family photos, your music collection, documents, or financial data. Backups are fast and simple to perform so it should be done on a regular basis.
A little bit of overkill, my friend. WD + H_C is plenty of protection. And you'll avoid potential conflicts between H_C & SH settings, or you may not be able to diagnose issues with other software you may use.
I use System Hardener mostly to tweaked settings not provided by HC such as DEP for all programs, or other tweaks that can be done manually on windows 10, but I prefer the convenience of System Hardener.
