Backup of the game saves is problematic with some content not permitted to be backed up. Protected content save files as an example.

Backups of the whole system takes hours and hours and hours. I mean really. Hours. Takes just as long to reinstall it as well.

It's an overnight set and forget type of setup.

I too have had complete system freezes with the only choice is to disconnect the power. Then the file system becomes corrupt and does a rebuild. Has happened to me say 20 times in the last few years. The worst was when I was playing Fallout 3. That game really had some issues.
