Backing up should be the most important thing you do.
Computers can be replaced but not your valuable data. 
When (not if) disaster strikes, having a backup can help get you back up and running quickly as well as keeping your data safe, by having it backed up to another location.

Apple Time Machine, which is a built-in feature of OS X is much better than having no backup at all, but might not suit all scenarios.

Below is a list of other backup software for Mac OS X
We do not make any recommendation or endorsement of any particular product, and this list will be by no means comprehensive, but hopefully one of these will help take the toil out of otherwise having to do manual backups.
