And for those concerned about that, there's SyncBack!

Of course it gets complicated if saved games are kept in the game folder rather than inside the userdata folder, but it's a good start. Most reasonable games save to Documents regardless.

For screenshots, I am sure I'm not like most people, but I use Fraps to capture the shots I want to keep for my personal collection, and Steam to capture only the shots I want to upload to the cloud.
