As mark said, "Data is priceless". Now, being new to Linux (and just
getting started with Mark's course), I would classify the home directory
as data. I have my Webroot as part of home as well as all of my users

tables (support for my developmental Web sites). These are pretty
straight forward and I have backups made from the DBMS's.
Is getting close?
