The only good reason not to backup is if you like pain.
What to Backup?
When it comes to backing up a computer, there are basically two options:
1) Backup only the important files: The most important data to backup is everything that would be difficult or impossible to replace such as photos, emails, written documents, etc. While creating a backup strategy, it is good to make a checklist of everything you would want to backup. This list may include things like: financial records, software and music you have bought online, personal documents, email address books, browser bookmarks.
2) Complete Hard disk Backup: On every computer, there is data that can be replaced, but doing so would take considerable time and effort. Such as your operating system, including all your installed software, and settings. You could always reinstall everything from disks, but that would take a lot of time. With certain backup software (hard disk imaging software) you can backup your entire hard disk, so that if it becomes corrupted, you can simply install the backup image of the hard disk, and everything (including all your installed programs, and settings) will be restored to the way things were when the backup was made, before the disaster struck.
