Create your images before you start surfing the Internet or playing online games.
Does the backup work if I plan on changing from a 32-bit to 64-bit? I'm asking because if backup and restore also backs up applications can they be restored on a 64-bit clean install or only on x86?

You could restore a 32-bit image on a 64-bit computer, but your Windows 7 would still only be 32-bit. Just for FYI, you will not be able to restore a 64-bit image on a 32-bit computer though.

If you want to use 64-bit Windows, then you would have to do a clean install using 64-bit Windows 7 installation media instead.
