I agree that backing up is an important practice, HOWEVER, ps3 developers should give the user more options for backing up your data as it is practical for that user. For example, not everybody has an 80+ GB usb hdd waiting to be used, if you want to back up your 80 GB ps3. It is far more likely/plausible that they have a 2/4/8 GB usb thumb drive, however. Naturally, you cannot backup "everything" in that scenario, but the more important detail is to be able to easily back-up specific things you want that will fit that kind of space.
That's where the ps3 dev's seem to have missed a vital feature. I imagine for each media sub-menu in the XMB (pictures, music, video, gamesaves), there should be a backup selection in the list (backup pictures, backup music, backup video, or alternatively, copy all pictures, copy all music, copy all gamesaves). Currently, you can "copy" your media, but only on a one-by-one item manner (which is ridiculously inadequate, if you just want to back up all of your pictures in one big lump, for example). If they can make this functionality, it would be a WHOLE lot more feasible for users to actively keep their media/gamesaves backed up, imo.
ARE YOU LISTENING, PS3 DEVS?
