    Given that each Windows patch these days seems to screw something over, I got the idea of buying an external SSD or flash drive, making it bootable and having it hold the last few system images prior to Windows update, so I can roll back if needed.

    Or I can keep an image of the last Windows image while I experiment with LTSC or even Linux.

    Is this a feasible scenario?

    Macrium Reflect Usage Guide:



    Here is how to create a bootable Flash Drive and partition it to have a single USB Stick containing both the Macrium Reflect Rescue Disk and a Backup Image partition in that rescue disk itself. So if you have a large/fast USB Flash Drive, you can use it to both boot into the Macrium Reflect program without installing and use its second partition to create a backup image of your computer



    What I usually do when I buy a new computer, the moment I turn it on and before even getting into the Windows setup wizard I boot straight away to the Macrium Reflect Rescue Disk, create a full backup of the local disk including all its partitions. That way I always have a backup of the untouched factory image should I ever need it in case I changed my SSD later or had an issue that prevents me to use the local restore option

    I was browsing through the very thread you created with those two videos when the alert popped up XD

    The answer sounds like a resounding yes.
