KDE user configuration backup

Hello
I use Kde Plasma on Wayland.
After a reboot, I found Kde Session without Desktop image (black), without Panel and without Latte dock.

I though that It was due to a bug, but it was due to configuration file corruption.
I fixed it installing again a Kde-theme with default values.
It works.

Is it possible to backup the kde user configuration?
How can I do it?
Thanks

Backup the .config file(s)

E.g.

Or, although it is a different concept, not really a backup, there is the widget "plasma customization saver".
It is not perfect in my opinion, but not so bad.

It is ok. I am not looking for the best solution. I am looking for how to have the Plama enviroment working as soon as possible.... without panic.

So in my opinion plasmaconfigsaver is perfect. Super easy to use and saving you with one click when you loose your latte config, themes, etc...

I use konsave.

BackInTime is a simple GUI app for backing up files in your home directory. You can easily exclude the large space consuming directories you do not need backed up.
