should I do an image backup of computer before upgrade from win 7 pro to win 10 pro?

Last Modified: 2019-11-21
Upgrading a bunch of win 7 pro machines to win 10 pro.  I was wondering if there is anything I can do prior to upgrading in the even that the install crashes.  Would a system restore point help in that situation or would I need to find an image backup software for the best solution?

Or, am I worrying too much about it and all will be fine?
