I wanted to make a backup of the Cardano DB for a faster restoration in the future.

Should I make a backup of all the folder DB or just the folder ledger ?

and when I need to restore should I restore the full DB folder or only some part of it?

Thank you

You should make a backup of the entire db folder as the majority of the data is inside the immutable folder.

For restoring, just copy all the content of the folder in the new node.
