Safe from what?

There is no definitive answer to your question. If your indexes aren't updated more than once a day you obviously don't have to create snapshots more than once a day. If the data is only used as a secondary index for a primary data source rather than being the primary data source itself maybe you don't need any backups at all, or you can run backups with a reduced frequency and/or scope.
