Could some please explain the correct procedure to use back up in c panel please

I have the option to create a full or partial back up / if I read the full back up instructions it reads like

A full backup will create an archive of all the files and configurations on your website. You can only use this to move your account to another server, or to keep a local copy of your files. You cannot restore full backups through your cPanel interface.

So I am unsure why we would use this option ? / do I need to take this back up ?

Or do i just do the part back ups and use those sections to restore the site from the Cpanel ? and I am guess in the part installs I would need to re install all sections to restore the site back ?

What are the best practices and procedures to use here ?
