    In case something goes 'sour' and you need to perform a clean installation.

    I keep a DVD copy, in case I have issues with the cloned image for the hard drive on one of my machines that is used for testing.

    I always keep a DVD copy in a DVD case on my shelf. This way, I know I can always get my hands on the OS right away, if needed.

    Depends upon how the copy is being kept. If on an HDD/Hard Disk Drive, a catastrophic failure of the drive can cause total loss of the data. I also prefer burning to a DVD against that possibility. The disc can also be handy when working with other computers. I buy the discs in 100-piece 'cakeboxes', under 30 cents each, cheaper than the old floppy disks.
