    I find your question confusing. A shell like Bash is a command interpreter and environment to execute commands. There are usually environment variables and config files, is that what your talking about backing up???

    A shell does not backup files.

    Can you explain with an example what you are trying to achieve?

    I have a feeling what your calling a "shell" isn't a shell. Are you talking about writing a shell script?
