The idea computer setup

"AND RESTORE IMAGE HERE" needs more explanation:  We will not restore this image to the ssd drive on the bottom EVERY month.  We will restore a final setup that we are happy with and prove that it boots and keep it around as our safety backup.  We prove our backup image file and our method of creating the image file is good because we prove it good by having this spare SSD boot-able drive.    Boot means we plug it in and tell the computer to read from that particular drive in the main computer setup and it loads windows or "boots" from that drive.    We turn auto update OFF when we make the clones so it does not start a 3 hour update process when we only needed to finish a sales quote or something like that.
