So when you back up your PC...does it recognize files that have been previously backed up, and not back them up again? And if you have since deleted files from your PC that you previously backed up, it keeps them stored on your back up drive, right? Prob stupid questions..just want to make sure I'm understanding the process.

Yes, it recognizes files that have been previously backed up, and it keeps files stored that have been previously backed up. But it will only back up items in the user's "my documents" directory. So if you want automatic back ups, do your work in the my documents directory.

I also hardily suggest that with anything of high importance that you back it up manually somewhere else just in case.
