Improve Update Message, remember Users to make a backup #23229
It's not harsh, it's a best practice of software management in general. Any time you make a major change to the software platform, you should make a backup so if something goes wrong you can quickly get yourself going again. This applies to everything; CMS', databases, web server software, programming language binaries (PHP, Node, etc.), operating systems, you name it.
