sleeping easier

I wonder how many people actually backup their home computers? I do a full backup quarterly and incremental backups monthly, but I'm still at risk if the system tanks between those events.

Backup started on 3/19/2006 at 1:18 AM.
Backup completed on 3/19/2006 at 1:24 AM.
Directories: 142
Files: 2281
Bytes: 405,954,032
Time: 5 minutes and 37 seconds
That said, I suspect I'm way ahead of most users, who either Throw Caution To The Wind and hope their systems don't crash, or simply lack the technical ability to perform a system backup (never mind testing their ability to restore a file, if that need arises). Alas, I feel better know that an extra copy of my data is within reach, even if it is (maximum) 30 days old.
