What I do to ensure it's a good system is to restore my previous full
image. Then I apply all updates, which I have noted in a text file.
Then I make a new full image, which I'll restore next time.
I use Macrium for that. System image takes less than 2 minutes.
The whole deal is about 10-15 minutes, depending on what updates I
have to do.
I use Free File Synch to mirror my data, which is kept in *one*
folder. It only copies new or changed files.

That's what I do and I understood Terry to be saying
the same thing. I keep data duplicates on other partitions
and back that up separately. But there are people who
think disk image backup means having a specialized
system restore program to do images periodically.
