Backing up is not the most enjoyable of tasks, but when something goes wrong, you'll be pleased that you went to the trouble of creating a backup. The process can be made a simple or as complicated as you like, and for many people a mere copy of their important files is all they need.

However, if you have spent time installing applications and configuring your computer to your liking, should something go wrong with your system, you not only run the risk of losing valuable files, but also face the prospect of getting everything back up and running.
