Just to be clear, you probably don't need to back up every directory

you run -adopath- you'll find the stuff you want in the paths labeled
PERSONAL and PLUS. I would be leery about backing up and restoring
Stata's own official files; I'd be more likely to reinstall Stata if
my current copy of those files somehow got corrupted.

Type -adopath- on the command line to see all the needed directories.
You could, of course, be putting user-written ado files anywhere
along the ado path, but I suspect anybody who is doing that is either
(a) being sloppy or (b) being smart and knows that they have to have
those files backed up separately.
