How to Backup?
When computers crash, the wise boot from backup, the fools boot themselves.
How Often to Backup?
You should backup up important files as often as possible. In the past, creating a backup was a time consuming and tedious task. Thankfully, today there is many good backup software solutions, and strategies. Backup software offers the capability to completely automate the backup process, so your data can be backed up automatically every hour, or every day, etc. This is ideal, so you don't need to rely on your human memory to backup regularly.
If you are creating new data daily, then creating a daily backup really is a good idea. It is easier to recover from losing one day's work, than a week's work, or a month's work, or a year's work.
Backing up the whole hard disk with imaging software, is something that takes longer, and if you are already creating backups of your important files regularly, creating a complete image copy of the hard disk can be done less regularly.
