I keep complete copies of all my websites on one of my PCs so I never 
have this problem.

It also makes it easier to do quick edits, like where I've made one of 
my famous typos :-), and track down coding problems.

You can simply download the whole site via FTP, making sure you keep 
the directory structure of course.
