Question about backing up computer

14 years ago

I have never manually backed up my computer before because i have never understood what you are supposed to do, and it looked like it would take way too long for all the stuff i have, so i prefer the online backup sites like dell/mozy etc.. but i assume most people must not do it that way because when people are giving advice on ways to back up photos etc it always says to make cd's or put on portable hard drive. It never mentions the online storage. Am i making a mistake by using one of these sites? With my pics i also have the special ones loaded up on facebook, photobucket and my space etc... but now that i will be transferring to a new computer shortly, i am just wondering if it is a good/bad idea to continue what i am doing or not? Thanks
