Would be a good idea, but it isn't a requirement. Just good practice.

Well you should always have at least one recent backup. I have 2 in case one fails. Let us know if you need help with that....some easy solutions.
But, generally adding RAM should not affect files. It can't be bargain RAM though.
Personally, I like to go with high quality, Mac friendly RAM. No bargain stuff. The original Samsung RAM failed in my MacPro after 2 years so I'm not a fan of that brand.
I feel Crucial RAM is the way to go. I have it in all three of My Macs, one of which has been running Crucial for 8 years now with no issues. It's a little higher priced, then some brands, but worth it and has a lifetime guarantee.
Crucial has a system tester that figures out exactly what RAM you need.

Just for your future reference: If a user solves your problem you award the Green to that user for solving the problem. Don't award your own post. You get no benefit for doing so and suggest to others that you solved the problem, not someone else.
The gold "helped" awards are for users who responded and helped you but did not actually solve your problem. You can award the golds twice but the green only once.
