Backing up just visible Office System files will only copy those files. The Lisa Office System supports invisible files which are only visible to Workshop development users, not Office System users. These invisible files contains operating system specific files such as the operating system itself.

My understanding is when you dupliate an entire disk (i.e. select the disk and use the Lisa Desktop Manager's duplicate menu command) then the Lisa copies all the disk's files to the destination disk _and_ it also copies the boot data which is stored at the beginning of the disk.
