A backup and a copy are the same thing.  All something must be to be a 
backup is a separate copy that does not see live usage.  You can do 
whatever you want to the live version, but you will not harm the 
backup.  Whether the backup is in the same file, or the same filesystem, 
or the same hard disk, or the same machine, or the same room, or the 
same building, or even the same planet makes no difference to the term, 
only the reliability.
