Your Backups - what's included?

... and more to the point, what have you NOT backed up?

All users should be.backing up their working data on a regular basis, but don't forget things like downloads and files that are being kept for archive purposes.  Things that don't get updated very often can be saved to DVD or memory stick whilst keeping a reference copy on your machine. Always think in terms of having at least 2 copies of everything.
