I am copying my Backup Drive to a hard drive to keep as a spare copy.  I simply "Copy/pasted" and it is copying now. Says it will take another our or so. It is 630GB of data.  Will this copy of my Backup Drive be a good copy?  The Backup Drive is the one SBS 2008 uses for the Windows backup that I have it run every night.  I decided I would make a copy of that and store that copy drive in an alternate location.  My question, sorry for taking so long to get to the point, but, is that copy going to be good if/when I need to restore?

If you copy all the files, then yes, it should be a copy you could restore from.
