Good reason for doing a periodic complete OS backup to the USB Spinnys is all the installed apps. Timeshift, or Windoze "System Restore" both work well for what they are intended but in the event of a corrupted OS drive you lose those backups.
It doesn't take that long to re-install any OS, it's the time and trouble to find and re-install all the friggin apps and utilities. In my case there's a mess of them!
