Question Best Win10 Back-Up Strategy w/ NVME + SSD + HDD

I'm seeking best Win10 back-up strategy on my new build already up and running, working great.

(Boot) - 1 TB NVME
(Games and Media) - (2) 1 TB SATA SSD's in a Win Storage Pool (Striped)
(BackUp and General Storage) - (2) 4TB SATA HDD's in a Win Storage Pool (Mirrored)

My confusion is if I should use Win10 File History or the legacy Backup/Restore carried over from Win7 - or something else.

At the end of the day, I just want to be covered if the Boot and Games/Media volumes croak since they don't have redunancy. Also, I'd love this to be automated. Set it forget it.

Right now I'm using a combo of the both but figured some Win experts could help me out.

I use Macrium Reflect for this. Works great, all automated, on whatever schedule you want.

Slightly modified since I wrote this, but the same general concept

And yes, I've had to use it to recover a completely dead SSD.
