I don't want to configure everything if I break something.
So I'm looking for a script which can backup everything and restore
everything back.
If I break something I'll use a Live CD to mount my disk, format it
and restore everything from a backup. Then it should work without
additional configuration.

I also want to have an ability to look through my data from time to
time. So archives aren't good for this.

I don't think there is a need for external packages. It's just a copy.
But I want to know which dirs should be copied.

(Yes, I want to have an ability to copy via net and to the local disk.)
