I have an old small CF card for my "master" settings files.

I also keep a copy of the settings file on the card(s) I use for images. Before formatting I load the settings from the card into the camera; this overwrites any temporary changes I may have made during the previous shooting sessions. After formatting the card I immediately save the settings.

This strategy gives me 2 levels of backup and always allows me to get back to my "master" settings.
