Bug Description

ORIGINAL: *A bunch of different blocks of text.

Deciding which files to back up, and locating them, is the most difficult step when attempting to perform a backup. Listed below are the most common locations of important files and settings that you may want to back up.

Personal files (documents, music, photos and videos)
These are usually stored in your home folder (/home/your_name). They could be in subfolders such as Desktop, Documents, Pictures, Music and Videos.
If your backup medium has sufficient space (if it's an external hard disk, for example), consider backing up the entire Home folder. You can find out how much disk space your Home folder takes up by using the Disk Usage Analyzer.

...

System-wide settings
Settings for important parts of the system aren't stored in your Home folder. There are a number of locations that they could be stored, but most are stored in the /etc folder. In general, you won't need to back up these files on a home computer. If you are running a server, however, you should back up the files for the services that it is running.

SUGGESTED:

Deciding which files to locate and back up can be very difficult. Listed below are the most common locations of important files and settings that you may want to back up.
WHY? *Inverted order between "locate" and "back up."

Personal files (documents, music, photos and videos)
These are usually stored in your home folder (/home/your_name). They could be in subfolders such as Desktop, Documents, Pictures, Music, and Videos.
If your backup medium has sufficient space (e.g. external hard disk), consider backing up the entire Home folder. You can find out how much disk space your Home folder takes up by using the Disk Usage Analyzer.
WHY? *"Music and Videos" and "Music, and Videos" have subtle differences.

...

System-wide settings
Settings for important parts of the system are not stored in your Home folder. However, they are most commonly found in the /etc folder. On a home computer, you generally won't need to back up these files. On a server, however, you should back up the files for the major services that run in the system.
*WHY? The paragraph needed major improvement. This paragraph is the most bothersome. Feedback would be appreciated.

System-wide settings
Settings for important parts of the system are not stored in your Home folder. Instead they are most commonly found in the /etc folder. On a normal computer, you will not usually need to back-up those files. However, on a server you should back-up the files for the major services that run the system.

Committed a couple of changes. I simply removed the first sentence. Left the wording under "System-wide settings" as is, though.

Thanks!
