Genuine question: would it be possible to do fresh install; then apply updates to date; then - before restoring user files from backup - do a Clonezilla of the pristine drive; and then restore that image in future when things begin to fill up? Restoring a clonezilla image takes 15mins or so.

I recollect the 'backup and do fresh install' thing from the days of win98 but assumed that all finished with the NT based OSes.
