Backing Up Settings question

I am wanting to know if there is some way to backup my settings onto a different drive just in case I ever run into problems (which has happened before but not for a while).  I’m super happy with the way things are running right now and just would like to find a way to save the settings elsewhere so that if I ever have to do a facorty restore, I can do it and just reset things to how I have them now.  I know there’s not a whole lot going on with regards to ATV1’s with the focus on ATV2 right now, but this would pretty much keep me happy for a long time to come.  (especially if I need to go wireless again which seems to have been the main/only source for things locking up or needing to be restored/reinstalled).

Thanks in advance.
