everything is in one folder- SBData usually (though your admin could have put it anywhere) - as long as you have that you are golden. Capture the folder that SBAdmin.exe is in as well and you have everything - there's nothing in the registry except schedules for the connectors and backup tool.
if your db is not up to date, then you can have problems, I would cross that bridge when you come to it. Worst case you're going to have to push the machine revision numbers up so they start paying attention to policy changes again. You can do that with a script of course.
machines/users which are not in your backup of course are going to be irrecoverable, so you'll need to safetech/wintech remove and reactivate those machines.
Best to put that db on some reliable storage!
