    I've never had use for an ISO.
    Hence my asking about them.

    I bought factory recovery disks from Gateway.
    Before using Macrium I used the disks twice.
    A Macrium image is so much easier.
    Installing maybe a hundred updates is tedious.
    Plus all the programs & other personal data.

    I have all the crapware removed from the OEM install.
    If my computer gets fried, hopefully I could use the Macrium image to set things up on a new computer.
    I think that can be done.
    Anybody know for sure ?
    I think the Deploy to different hardware feature should handle that?

    Probably.
    Hopefully such a scenario is a long way down the road.

    I have 2 Macrium backup images made.

    Before making the images I defragged, virus scanned, ran CCleaner, etc. .

    It's been a long time since I did a system clean up, so I'll try doing that too after backing up Defrag not an option for me though.

    Its SSD now
    Daily automatic optimization task has already been created in task scheduler, so that'll take care of SSD maintenance.
    Hope there is nothing else to do.
