There are a lot of model/brand specific chipset installations, software, and utilities that don’t come off a fresh Windows 10 install, so those are the ones I keep updated and ready to roll jic. I also keep a new-ish NVidia driver on hand, and all my software keys and a new-ish installation of those packages on the stick.
I also have a document that lists the settings I prefer, such as turning off notifications or changing the default file explorer from Quick Access to This PC. Little tweeks here and there I like and don’t have to have to look up to remember how to do them.
The last time I installed off my disaster recovery system was just a week ago when I upgraded my PC and the installation itself took less than 2 minutes, and after an hour I had everything up and installed and my taskbar set up the way I like it.
