    None. I save all my personal files into appropriate folders that are easy to get at, usually called "My Documents" "My Pictures" "My Music" "Desktop" etc etc. Then I do a full reinstall every six months. Having said that I don't play games and I do not store my emails on my computer and I use NAS.

    Free and image? Clonezilla.

    I'd recommend Macrium before Clonezilla for you only because Macrium is more user-friendly for someone not familiar with imaging software.

    I personally don't use imaging software, but looking through the internet Macrium seems to be a popular and well rated option.

    Could have sworn you already asked this question.

    I've used AOMEI Backupter. I used it to clone and clone back a netbook and my laptop. I also use it to periodically clone to an external HDD of my desktop.
