Windows 7: Any reason why I shouldn't install Windows 7 on my PC?

My Macrium image is on an external HD. If my HD gets screwed up, I wouldn't want to reinstall system, programs and data, as it takes me 2 weeks to set up a new computer. I would just restore the image, which is just one file.

My data is also backed up more often on a 2nd computer. There are also differential backups, as lehnerus2000 outlined, but as my computer doesn't change very much over time, I skip those. YMMV.

Thank you, I use SyncbackSE so I will learn how to do a system photo on that.
