It is quite powerful but of course that means it can be a little more complicated to get the most out of it, but even using the guided one click options gives a reasonable result - and the integration with windows own recovery system is worth setting up if you're setting up for non technical people

Thanks everyone for your wisdom. I think I'm going to experiment with my personal PCs to get a little more familiar with this backup thing. Once I complete this, I will feel more comfortable in the set up. Ya'll have been very informative and I appreciate you helping me on this. Learned a lot here.
