I also find it useful to turn on System Protection for data partitions. Previous Versions is very useful for recovering from just such screw ups.

+ 1 for FreeFileSync, it's an amazing file backup tool. Another program I use on a daily basis.

I also keep the System Protection feature turned on for my Data drive, very handy. Pity Microsoft have removed it from Windows 8 as it's saved me some files I've changed/deleted in the past.
