Hmmm, I'm not sure I understand what you're asking. NCU is exactly doing
this, albeit not in a perfect way. But if can backup the entire content of a
card, packages and soups, and restore them without any problem.
Like others suggested, check the FAQ, if you have a fast processor, run
SlowDown one or two times, and make sure you're doing a full backup, not an
incremental one. To do so, make sure that there isn't any backup file for
your card sitting in the directory selected in NCU for backup.
