Ok, so this is the weekend I downloaded and became addicted to Foobar2000.  I have it very close to what i want.
 
I am so afraid to keep trying new things because I cannot figure out the back-up (and will probably struggle with the restore as well).
 
I keep reading the Wiki, and the support pages and it seems there should be a profile directory (either in windows root or in foobar directory dependant od profile enable) but I cannot find it.
 
So I installed the back-up component and just can't seem to locate a back-up file anywhere when those parameters are met (for autoback-up).
 
Any advice or links to better information would be appreciated!

Enter this path in explorer: %APPDATA%\foobar2000
 
On my Win7 machine this resolves to: C:\Users\<my username>\AppData\Roaming\foobar2000
 
Simply zip the entire foobar2000 folder, do your experiments and if you want to go back just delete the folder and unzip the backup. Foobar2000 itself should not be running while you do the backup/restore.
