You suggest the frequency with which information is modified should be used as the criteria for determining how often backups should be performed. I suggest the criteria should be how much data you can afford to lose. If it would not be a problem to lose a week's worth of data, then back up once a week. But if it would prove to be a catastrophe to lose a full day's worth of data, maybe the data needs to be backed up more than once a day. It depends on what you can afford to lose.
