Is it reliable, in terms of backing up every hour?

THe file backups will restore file in the folder you slect, the image probably not, depends on config.

 

But this is a backup solution, not a migration or cloning solution.

the image is for in case my laptop(windows 10) decided to break itself- my laptop is acting weirdly lately(clean install doesn't fix the problem), while my plan for the backup is for easy transfer to a new pc

You can restore the files on your desktop, but its unlikely to get a bootable image.
