I read the original post several times and I still cannot see what the question is.
Do you have a server that needs to be backed up?
How much data? (The number of files and folders is not really relevant)
Do you have any backup software?

The easiest thing is to tar.gz all the needed files (to save permissions, they would be lost by simply copying to Windows) and copy the archive.

Backup/Restore/Cloning

I have been looking for a long time for a good (open-source) solution.
I think the answer is DRBL/Clonezilla
I have written a small how-to for openSUSE but it should also apply to any distro: http://forums.suselinuxsupport.de/in...howtopic=52250
I have used it to clone my system from an 80GB hard disk to an 320GB HD
