There must be a good professional way of doing it.

FWIW I would also do a simple FLAC copy as an additional precaution.

It won't be the first backup where an item was wanting to be restored only to find that the backup format was so old or hardware specific that the data was effectively lost.

imho best export in native format so that when Sooloos eventually dies you can then use the export in another system.
