If it's a clone of your C: drive, sure.

 Thanks!  I will dig in deeper when the time comes, luckily I have gone a ton of years not having to do so.

I don't do back ups in the sense of saving the data, I make a clone on a weekly basis onto a second drive via a usb 3 port with Macrium Reflect so if anything disastrous should come up, it's just a matter of switching hard drives. It would only take several minutes to be nearly back to where I was

Yep. I make clones of C: and F: drives (C: a M.2 NVME drive and F: (my big 2 tb data drive)...if anything happens I can just hook up the clones and clone back either drive. Acronis is my friend.... lol
