you know? you can backup essentially anything and everything in DSL either with your usb thumb drive or hard drive. The point is to what degree you would like it to be done.
For example, if you separate your data in another HD partition, you can "mount --bind " your partition to a directory using /etc/fstab every time you boot up your system.
/share/share/html /var/www/html none bind 0 0 # when it is in a different directory
/dev/hda8 /var/www/html ext3 defaults 0 0 # when it is in a separate partition
Or you can include the directory in your .filetools and save all your data in usb thumb drive. boot time include restore=sda1 (for usb drive or whatever drive you are using). Remember, depending on the size of your data, this could take long for your to backup and restore.
