Default How many backups do you keep?

I've had a few instances where a backup saved me from hours of re-flashing, re-installing apps and having to start from scratch. I always have 2 backups on my sd card, and copies of those backups on my computer, and another set on a Verbatim usb flash drive.

I guess I like being overly cautious.

I only kept two EFS backup (in case of) and that's all about data.
Everytime I make a fresh install of the required applications I want to restart with. (my Playstore account)
This way no risk to worry about something going wrongly.
