My question is should the WSUS database (SUSDB.mdf & Log) be backed up as part of my routine backup strategy?

Is there any thing in this database that can not be rebuilt if my server goes down and I need to rebuild it?

Also, there is an entire directory called WSUS on the hard drive, does this folder and all it contains need to be backed up too?
