    Configuration files are usually stored in the /etc directory and in your home directory. Backing up these two locations on a regular basis is a good way to make sure your personal files and all configuration settings are safe. The easiest way to do that is probably to hook up an external drive and run a command like

    cp -R /etc ~ /media/external-drive

    Where "external-drive" is the directory where your USB drive is attached to the system.
