Nope, it's just if anything goes wrong, you won't loose any files if you back it up. - Luke.

I wouldnt worry too much about backing up your ENTIRE computer. You have XP, so you have system restore. If any problems arise, which they prolly wont, but if they do then you can just uninstall SP2

I would reccomend just backing up your documents and personal information such as Tax records or files from your work or family's work. Also, any game saves or particularly hard to recreate settings from an application.

 

I basically moved my Music out of My Music, and backed up my entire User Profile when I did, yet didn't end up needing it.
