Is One Drive able to serve as a backup for restoring Windows
so one does not have to install everything from scratch?
I have Microsoft 365, so backup space is not an issue.
So if I do a clean restore of Windows 10 I can get all my
software back all at once instead of getting it back
Thank You! For your response!

And, therein, lies the problem. I am a tech geek, I understand
most, if not all, of what's being discussed as being involved in
doing this. Realistically, most end users don't and never will.
They have absolutely no interest in getting this involved in
delving "under the hood."
I applaud anyone who does. But I also know that my personal
concern, and that's whether a client is blind or sighted, is that
they have a backup protocol in place and that they are able to
take the backups independently on whatever cycle is dictated by
their personal circumstances. If they need to recover from
within Windows, that's already accessible under most of the
software out there, and if they need to do a disaster recovery,
it's generally not. Having to hire someone to come in and
actually do a disaster recovery is cheap, very cheap, compared to
losing years worth of work and data, and way, way cheaper than
engaging professional data recovery services on a failed drive.
I am far more concerned that the average user, blind or sighted,
is taking backups so they're available for recovery, than I am
about their ability to do the recovery independently. God
willing, they'll never need to use the backup, but if they don't
have it to use and they have a catastrophic failure, then they are
well and truly up the proverbial creek, in whitewater flooding
stage, sans paddle.
