My system is setup with a 1TB hard dive which is for my OS and any system files. then I have 3 2TB hard drives and on those hard drive, I have triple redundancy so I have an exact copy of all my data on 3 different drive so I would have to lose 3 hard drive at the same time to lose anything. I use GoodSync to backup things and it works great.

If I remember correctly a image is a copy of the drive that you have everything on it and in case that hard drive goes bad you have the image. In my case if I lose a hard drive I just buy a new one and copy the data from one of the 3 backup drives or if it is the drive with my OS I just do a clean install.

This way may not be perfect but it has worked for me for years.

For data, yes, it is alright ( I do that myself too).
But for your Windows installation, it won't work. You would need to reinstall everything (OS+programs).

With Macrium you image C drive and System Reserved (if there is one), and if you ever need to, just recall the image to a new drive or your old one (can be another problem, not necessarily a drive failure). Takes max 30 minutes to return to your OS+programs!

See Imaging with free Macrium

I strongly urge you to image your C/System Reserved now, and keep that untouched (keep a copy of the image file on two discrete drives). Then take images every x amount of time, depending on how much your OS change. Weekly or monthly for example. Keep last 2-3 images and delete the older ones. I hope I was clear.

Ask anything that doesn't make sense.

I hear you and know what you are saying but if I lose a drive I don't mind doing a clean install of my OS & Programs.
