I'm still afraid of catastrophic failure on the SSD, given that it is not a high end model.

None of that matters much - hardware failure, malware, viruses , ransom attacks or whatever - if you have a sound backup strategy. Fix the hardware if there's a failure, reload your backup image and end of problem.

If the C: contains only the OS and programs, with all data on other drives, I find life is easier by periodically cloning it to an identical (but external) drive.

My preference is to backup to image file. This does NOT require any specific drive (other than "don't use" the backup from drive. Using the Image backup allows placing more than one (or many) backups on the same drive.

If, however, the worry is that the drive itself is faulty, then there is a cloned replacement already available.
