Hello and welcome to community forums Stan,
Thank you for the kind works, I am glad to hear you like Veeam Endpoint Backup!
1. Is such a feature available through the product? (Not that I'm expecting it, just asking)
Yes we have an option to create a standalone full backup. It’s not involved in retention mechanism, so once needed you can right click the tray icon > backup > standalone full backup. It is created according to the settings you specified in the Configure Backup wizard and placed in the same backup location.
2. Can appropriate files for each Endpoint Platform be identified? If I could identify the appropriate files, I would put together a separate process to copy a full image backup (say weekly) to an offsite location.
Yes, each backup has its own ID which is generated based on the hardware, that helps to identify backup on restore, but would not prevent you from manually specifying another backup file if needed.
3. Finally, if I had such a file, would I be able to accomplish a bare metal restore to recover from such a true disaster?
Sure you can. Just do not forget to create Veeam Recovery Media
