    @pablozi:
    • For "Disk Imaging Backup", You may add Macrium Reflect Free or AOEMI Backupper, both are free and reliably.
    • Consider also to run manual backups of important data to external devices.
    • A PassWord Manager would be welcome also.
    Please kindly reflect Your changes editing Your config, and announcing them here, thanks for sharing :giggle:

    Replace Revo by Hibit Uninstaller. Its' free and the best from all the uninstallers I tested.

    Removed Brave - sync issues are killing me: sometimes it takes hours to sync from PC to Smartphone and vice versa and every few days I end up with doubled bookmarks. Too much hassle for a browser.
    Will give it a go again after next few major releases.
