You need to backup the ENTIRE C: drive of the media server and the system state.  Make sure you include the Data and Catalog directories under the BE installation directory in the backup.

To recover your server, restore the C: drive and the system state and then reboot the server.  Read the preparing for disaster recovery section of the Admin Guide which can be found in the BE installation directory.

You might also want to read the section on IDR and use it to aid your recovery.
