Hey realized I haven't updated my config for 2018. I honestly should spend more time here again. I will probably move my Emsisoft license to my currently (new) computer at some point. Really out of ideas on what to add for better privacy. Usually when I add things it tanks my internet. (I like streaming ESPN a lot :p ) I need some image backuper but space can be an issue. Usually all my files are on multiple clouds and backup drives, and majority of my files aren't really important, so if anything goes wrong I just wipe the thing.

Nice config, thanks for sharing :)

Good personal data backup policy, with regard to OS images, I understand you and you could use an external HDD for space reasons.
You can wipe the Windows partition when needed but the problem is to download all the updates again and reinstall all your apps, great loss of time.
An updated OS image is immediately ready for operation.

I think you should start using a password manager and an ad-blocker. Nice configuration I like your sync options.

Updated for 2019! Might need some suggestions in terms of system cleanup, system backups, password management, ect. Got a new laptop so using WD + tweaked settings atm. Renewed my Emsisoft license but haven't switched yet.
