You should backup everything on your website. I personally prefer doing a purge redundant daily non-milestone database backups every few months in a data audit. However if you edit your site more frequently then it is suggested that you do more frequent backups.

I suggest that once a week  you  do a full system copy for all drives and partitions to an external USB drive
