Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

As long as there are no user files on the pc then you can safely not backup.. This is one of the reasons why folder redirection is so popular.  We use User Experience Virtualization and Folder Redirection here and since we can wipe and reinstall the OS in 30 minutes other than having MSE and MalwareBytes on each computer if they get compromised we just wipe and re-install rather than troubleshoot. We leverage WDS and MDT and SSCM.

Other than that then you have to backup the users files on a regular basis before it is too late
