    Thanks for the thread :)

    I voted Never
    Why ?
    Because I haven't got Google data to save and don't use Google products :D
    (only created one google e-mail to register here)

    I'm in the same boat as Hanmin147,
    But from a security standpoint @Huracan is this something we should be doing regularly ? I am interested in your feedback. PeAcE

    Never. Pretty much because I have no use for it (God, the more I post here, the more I realise how lazy I am, it's really bad).

    Maybe someday I'll download and backup it. But for now I just do GDrive backup to another service.
