Drives, Printer Mappings Backup for user profile

Looking for a way to backup a user's network drive mappings as well as network printer mappings so that they can be reapplied on a replacement pc.  Is there software for this or possibly a script that can backup to file and then reapply the settings on a target machine?

Thanks!

for mapped drives export the whole tree under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Network and then apply on other computers
for network printers export the whole tree under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Printers\Connections and apply the reg file on the target computers

here are some good example of how to map network drives and printers with a script http://www.computerperformance.co.uk/Logon/logon_scripts.htm
you can just create a script with all the settings and mappings then run it or push it to every machine

Looking more for the copy part.  How can I copy the current mapped printer and drive shares and then move to a different machine and reapply them exactly for the same user profile?  I dont want have to write down each mapping for each user and then manually map each printer and share on their replacement PCs.
