    @Sumeet Kumar:

    Enable UAC, at least to default.

    In Photos and Documents Backup, consider to save data to external devices and/or cloud services.

    In Backup and Restore, You may add a full Image System BackUp solution: Macrium Reflect Free or AOEMI Backupper, both are free and reliable.

    Please kindly reflect Your changes editing Your config, and announcing them here, thanks for sharing :)

    I have enabled UAC to default. I dont have any personal photos in my laptop, most of them are images received via email from clients, and I can redownlaod them from emails. And Since I have office 365 subscription, I save all of my docs directly to one drive. I never save them locally, thats why I dont think I need a file/photos backup solutions.

    For programming/coding - I have setup github repos and I push all changes to servers as soon as I finish a functionality.

    I'll look into full image system backup tools though.

    Thank you for suggestions.
