    This is the correct and easier way to do it.

    The harder, more manual way is to back up each portion one by one:

    Policy:
    Configuration > Policy > Policy Files > Visual Policy Files > VPM-CPL > Text Editor > Install.  Copy to notepad.  This is the Policy logic file.
    Configuration > Policy > Policy Files > Visual Policy Files > VPM-XML > Text Editor > Install.  Copy to notepad.  This is the Policy graphical state file (what VPM shows).
    Configuration > Policy > Policy Files > Policy Files > Install Local File from > Text Editor > Install.  Copy to notepad.  This is another Policy logic file.  SOmetimes will be blank based on your configuration.
    Configuration > Policy > Exceptions > Install Exception Definitions from > Text Editor > Install.  Copy to notepad.  This is the Exception pages on policy block, etc.

    Network and Global configs:
    Configuration > Policy > Archive > Archive Configuration > Configuration - expanded > View.  This is the Network configurations mostly.
