How to make backup nvda?

I'm not saying you can't save settings aside from making a portable version, but I would think a portable version would be the easiest way.  Andd any add-ons are also kept in the portable version and will be available if you install NVDA using the portable version.  Your speech dictionaries will also be preserved. 
 
As far as I know the portable version and installing from the portable version preserves everything or just about everything.
 
You can save the portable version anywhere, on a thumb drive, an external hard drive, anywhere, even someplace like Dropbox.  I make a new portable version now and then as a backup for anything I've changed over time.

Well, I also thought about making the whole portable version of NVDA, I meant that I would choose a folder where my user settings would be copied without creating the whole portable version of NVDA.

Because I don't want to have a problem installing NVDA

hello.
you can copy your nvda profile from app data, (i did not test this myself),
and you can create portable copy from your installed version of nvda,
and after your work,
open nvda.exe in your portable version,
then install nvda on your system using tools select install nvda
and be sure to check, copy portable configurations.

I also have add-ons installed there, and if I installed NVDA on my computer,
I would import my saved settings with add-ons as well.
