    All very useful.
    But I'd like to know one more thing.
    How often should one replace the repair CD with an update, not so much for fear that the CD might suffer damage, but to keep track of changes to Win7 itself?

    In other words, do patches, changes, changed settings in Win7 get included to any extent in the repair CD?

    MS got it right on that System Image it does work
    Thats a good thing to do if you have no other image software and also can be reached by tapping F8 and choose the Repair your Computer.
    Maybe once a month depending on how much your system changes by install uninstall a lot of software. Or do you want to keep the sparkly clean image from first time.
    I backup my important files to an external usb drive weekly.

    No
    I wouldn't update it unless specifically requested to do so from MS due to some issue that affects the boot disk functionality specifically.
