Absolutely. Each hub, even ones I've unpublished, has its own directory containing the text, related images, captions and notes with references for each hub.
Yes, I keep a copy of the articles that I publish. Once I put it live on the website, I copy and paste it into a word document and keep it in my computer files.
Yes and the main reason is if Hub Pages closes I want to articles elsewhere. I keep different files for different topics and have several backup disks in case my computer goes six feet under. Plus I mail the articles as attachments to several email accounts just in case something goes wrong with my flash drives. I lost an ebook I was working on that was saved to my flash drive, luckily I had sent it to my yahoo and had that copy.
Always keep copies and file them well. I learned the hard way haha. I am still cleaning up my computer and finding things. It is important to keep copies - but more important to have them organized
Excellent advice of course from starme77. Not much good knowing you have them but where? Computers get choked with endless files, so the search may be long and boring.
I don't feel any need for it. As you say, if, by our bad luck, hubpages get closed, we shall be getting some notice to take back our articles, I hope. But why the need arises?
I have 128 hubs by now and have stored only a few hubs, It is now my great concern to store copies of all hubs safely. I love to copy all in my Kindle e-Reader using their Personal Document Service. Mailing copies to our email is id a good option.

I'm experimenting with writing a small eBook - can I use my published hubs and copy some of the content from them into an ebook? I realize my Hubs won't get penalized, but is it a good idea?
