my Home Server crashed a couple of days ago. Luckily, I had a “full” backup, or so I thought.

As I am currently manually re-installing everything, anyway, it is too late. But I’d like to have a complete backup when switching back to my Home Server once possible. What do you suggest I do?
Where are files saved other than in the hass root directory, that I’d need to include in my backups from now on?
Thank you in advance for your support
