Please enable System Updates, at least set them to Manually...

You may set UAC also to Always Notify.

Consider also in Data BackUp to run manual backups of important data to external devices, and/or in cloud services.

Backup:
- Macrium Reflect is a solid choice for backup, no excuses on this one
I see you have this on your system within the config so this could be an editing mistake on your end. The above is needed either way as I cannot be sure if it is on your system or not.

Everything else to me looks good, thanks for sharing.

I usually do full backup of OS patitions of all PCs using MR in WinPE. Are system and data backups the same?
I do have separate HDD for data backup and I manually backup data.
