That would include backing up all exhibits, source templates, report definitions, etc. which the current basic backup does not save. (I'm still confused what is missing from a normal backup, but I'm sure when I need the information, I can find it by trolling this list and >the many helpful documents available on-line.)

The best and easiest way to get accurate information about what is
included in a backup is to step through the Backup and Restore Wizards
with the option for Backup All (projects and customizations) and to
read the Help topics for Backup and Restore. The Restore topic
includes a recommendation about backing up exhibits outside of TMG if
the exhibits are stored in a multi-folder tree.
