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 alwayd do Nandroid once before each clean flash , occasionally before dirty flash.

I only have EFS , contacts and maybe some little more important things backed up into PC , that's it

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.

I think I've got almost every backup I've done on my computer from all 3 smart phones I've had.
HTC legend
HTC desire hd
Galaxy S4
Possibly at least 10 backups each 😰
