What folders do I need to backup whenever I make a change.  I would like to keep a complete backup of the site just in case the original is corrupted.  I have been coping my entire root directory but his takes hours.

Cheers,

Use version control software. I use Subversion to good success with Magento.

You shouldn’t be making any changes in the actual core files ... it’s better to either extend the classes or make a copy of the file in your local code folder (or for the template in your own template folder) with the exact same file structure. This way you won’t lose the changes in an upgrade.
