Changed backup program from Hasleo backup Free back to Aomei Backupper Pro. Not because Hasleo is a bad piece of software, because it is absolutely not. But actually for very simple reasons. One of those reasons is that NPE kept showing me a warning about Hasleo, and since NPE does not allow me to exclude files/programs, it was a bit annoying. Combined with the fact that I just got my PC back a short while ago, and Hasleo had not made that many backups yet, it was in my opinion not so bad to go back to Aomei Backupper Pro.
Everything else of my security setup is still the same.
