Don't use any backup or restore utility in OpenEMR on a windows machine.
You don't need it anyway, and things are MUCH simpler.
Yes, everything is in your xampp folder. Worry about that and nothing else more specific.
Dr. Bowen is giving you directions for a linux install. For an Xampp install, just treat the whole xampp directory as the bit to back up. Then, you are keeping a backup of your whole server system, websites and everything. Don't use an internal backup tool. I use the free tool fbackup, and the whole folder (changes only) is mirrored onto another computer (back-up server on-site) and an external hard-drive. REAL simple to set up, with none of the permissions, directory structure or general hell of the linux apps. If you want to install the emr on a different computer, just copy the directory onto the machine under c:/, start the servers with xampp control, and you are running a copy of the original just like that.
