Honestly, I'd snapshot the entire server(s) before starting the upgrade - but in reality, /etc/swift is absolutely critical to have backed up.

This directory contains the swift configuration files as well as the ring files and ring builder files, which if lost, render the data on your cluster inaccessible. A best practice is to copy the builder files to all storage nodes along with the ring files. Multiple backup copies are spread throughout your storage cluster.
