As long as you use a recent CM (10.1 should be ok), you're safe from SDS as long as your phone is "running".
However, when you use this older 5.5 recovery, you are not safe
from SDS at the moment the recovery is running.
CM 10.1 contains a patched kernel = OK
Recovery from CF-Root 6.4 has a non-patched kernel = NOT Safe !
I'd recommend update the recovery to Philz CWM or TWRP (use the most recent versions, these contain a patched kernel)
Get this recovery : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2002953
It's great and safe !

i can't see it using file manager and in laptop, i thought it was just hidden but still nothing.
i was hoping i could make a copy of it on my laptop for future uses and save phone disk space.
is there by any chance i could see it?..thanks in advance
Should be on your SD (internal or external) under /ClockWorkmod/backup/2013-02-xx/......
Replace "2013-02-xx" by the date you made the backup.
