Hi Brian - Congrats on the Clean Reinstall!

As it says in the Clean Reinstall tutorial the modern way to do that is to save a Windows 7 backup image externally so you can reimage your HD or its replacement in 20 minutes if Windows 7 becomes unbootable. Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup

Keep a separate backup of data, or link data to libraries from another partition, so that it is current if forced to reimage due to Windows 7 becoming irreparable. You can automate this backup or simply drag the active User folders to external periodically. Backup User and System Files
