What application are you using to make your "Windows images"??
I gave up on it, but I think the Windows tool can back up your personal data as well as Windows, depending on your chosen settings. Some say it can be confusing.
An image file should contain each and every thing on the chosen partition and is most often used to back up Windows itself. Most would tell you not to rely on images for your personal data backups.
