Need help understanding system backup vs disk backup

I was visiting Aomei's site where it explains system vs disk backup.

Here's what they say about each backup type...

System Backup is a type of backup aiming at imaging system partitions and other system related partitions (such as system reserved partition and boot partition), including system files, boot files and data on these partitions.

^ The data in this case is not stuff like photos, documents, etc. But other types of data used by the system (operating system) Am I correct?

Disk Backup is to back up all partitions on the specific disk you select, including all data on that disk.

^ The data in this case is stuff like photos, documents, etc. Correct?

So if I want to backup everything on my disk, I should use Disk Backup, right?

One last question...in what cases would one use System backup? Would that backup the operating system, but nothing else?

Many thanks!
