Default Curious - how often do you back up?

Please Login to Remove!

Because I toy with my handheld as often as I do, I've wigged it out to the point of having to reload the OS on numerous occasions. Only took a couple times of getting burned before I thought to backup more than I did...particularly once I figured out that it backs up pictures/ringtones/etc, in addition to messages.

Now, I find myself backing up at LEAST once a day. Sometimes more than once.

Thoughts?

I usually back up after loading a new application which can be once or twice a week

Every 2 to 4 weeks. Unless I'm installing something, then I back up before it implodes!

Once a month or so since I'm on a BES. And only because my Password Keeper doesn't get backed up to the BES like everything else.

Never. The important stuff for me is synced wirelessly via BES with the Exchange server. All the other stuff isn't important enough IMO to really warrant loading Desktop Manager and hooking up the USB cable.
