One question (probably a stupid one) can I drag and move the files created by Windows Backup in my external? I would like to organise more than what is currently is as it is just throwing the image into the HDD.
No, do not play with he image file, tell it where you want it to go when you create it then leave it alone. As time goes by, your programs are installed, windows is fully updated, and you`re 100% happy with windows etc, then you can delete the image you made and create a new one, but don`t move or mess with any images you create.

I also recommend using both windows imaging and Macrium.

And please clarify to everyone exactly what you mean by backup, as a Backup and an Image are 2 totally separate things.
