Hi,
I just backed up those files with no problem.

Please make sure you use an administrator account and you start FBackup as administrator.

What is the error message you receive if you use as source the "config" folder?

Perhaps I should Clarify, this was tried in Windows Server 2008 R2 (Windows 7 64bit is the equivalent)

The Account is not "Administrator" but is an administrator of the machine.
I hacked the (ini) file to include the files I wanted;

(Note that the first two files (Test & Hosts) have icon's in the GUI but the last three files do not)

I've now removed IIS from the machine and will image a virtual machine instead.
