    There is no dumb question ! ;)

    Nope, the backup ( CWM or Titanium whatever you used ) is stored on your SD-Card, so as long as you don't partition or format your SD-Card, your backup is safe !!! :)

    ........wellllllll, however, it it ALWAYS a good idea to copy a successful backup from the SD-Card to your computer, just in case ( SD_Card's can go bad too, accidental deletes, etc..... )........ I have like 4 - 5 different backups saved on my computer. CWM and Titanium backup........ Of course, I am a backup-freak anyway......

    When you make a cwm backup, you can rename them WITHOUT SPACES. i do one a week and then more if i make major changes. This way I'm always up to date incase something happens. If I make tweeks or changes is a great idea before and after, if mess up can revert back and if works then have it if decide to do something else to mess things up. Titanium, I only backup apps, never use to backup system, CWM does that the best.

    I also backup the entire sd card and save to pc and then delete the old one every once in a while for same reason that it might go bad or mess up.

    I agree with VCE, when it comes to asking questions about your phone that you don't know, there is no dumb question.

    You picked a good phone to ask questions about because the support in this section is superb. The people who want to help far outnumbered the ones who don't. There are some very knowledgeable people in here.

    I agree wet, this is one of the most friendliest Android communities our there. No such thing as a stupid question, that's how we all started.

    No doubt, bro.

    Most of the people here are awesome. The ones that aren't usually fall by the wayside or are quickly put in their place. If someone wants to learn about their device, this is certainly the right place for them to be.:)
