Hello Tony,

Generally one back up every week would be more than enough. We tend to recommend backups before and after any major changes or updates to the hive manager or your configuration objects (i.e. adding a new Network Policy, updating the Hive Manager to a newer version, etc). At the very least I would recommend a back up once a month, just in case. 

Hope this helps!

Tony, It depends on the number of changes you do. If you do a lot, it is better to do more backup than when you do less number of changes ;-)

We take a daily backup in our environment (on prem HM)
