I have a question about EaseUS Todo Backup, what is the best amount of system backups to keep at all times? Is the last 3 or 5 the best ... or more.

I am not asking because I have to little space, ( The backups are made automatically on my 5TB external HD. ) I am just curious as to what the best practice is in this case.

I'm using Macrium Reflect, system backups are made at least once per week, I kept all the full year after that just deleted the first 6 months.
The most important is the first system backup after "clean install" of Windows 10, that should be stored until you are making the next clean install...

Alright, I will place the first System Backup in its own clearly marked folder, and then just keep all the others until the end of the year. At that point I will delete the first 6.
