Being skillful from hardware to software is a great asset !
I never do a disk image of my whole computer before formatting it (because I like to filter manually what I want to save) but it's a good reflex to have, and it's most useful when working for clients.

Yes, backups are definitely important. I prefer to spend 50$ or 80$ on a USB drive and have peace of mind, rather than risking to lose everything.
