From what I've read about it over the years, it's not as reliable as a good image/restore utility.

As Digmor stated, what the OP is doing does look like a lot of work. For my simple home-use needs, I cold image when I feel it's time, usually twice/month on average, using Clonezilla for Linux and Macrium Reflect free for Windows, saving the images to a 1 TB external hdd. That's it. Both these image/restore utilities are ultra reliable.

It's stated in my post #1 below

4) Software: Macrium Reflect Home

Why not just:

  1. System OS, all Windows updates and drivers only
  2. Backup with ALL updated 3rd party software

It;s stated in my post #1 below

- Great for rollback if want to remove specific software and its registry remnants without dealing with messy registry cleaners which can never 100% remove all registry remnants especially for AV/AM software

As for seprately backup OS initially and minor update (with initial OS) separately, if a minor update has issue I can rollback to the date before that
