    Staff notes

    This setup configuration doesn't have a backup plan. We strongly recommend to add a backup solution for your data so that you can restore it in the case of an emergency.
    Backing up allows the recovery of data that has been lost due of a malware attack (eg. ransomware) or a hard disk crash. In such events you might lose family photos, your music collection, documents, or financial data. Backups are fast and simple to perform so it should be done on a regular basis.

    That's like trading your Gucci sneakers, for Walmart shoes....

    Anyways onto the setup..

    Windows FW:
    - Could try Tinywall alongside WFW, helps you control WDW better and Tinywall adds rules. Paired with Syshardener for better protection.

    User Acc:
    - Maybe try a Standard acc, up to you

    Data Backup:
    - Use something such as Macrium Reflect or Aomei Backupper (the latter has a 1 year free trial still on this site I believe), it's better to have two ways to restores your machine encase anything happens with the syncing of 1Drive

    Windows Defender, kinda wanna facepalm with this choice, but this is up to you and not my personal computer. It's very heavy of the system and abeit not the best of protection either.

    All the above is optional, ty for sharing.
