Default [Q] Recovery Backup/Restore Question

Got another n00b question (and this is probably a dumb one). I'm trying to cleanup my device storage and make a little room. I have a couple old backups that I'd like to save just-in-case. I created them in TWRP. Can I just move the full backup folder (sd\twrp\backups\[backup date]) to another storage and transfer it back to the device later if needed? Are there any other files I would be missing? I would plan to keep at least one full back-up on the device just-in-case I run into issues when flashing a new ROM.

Thanks!

Yes, just be sure to have twrp check and make md5 sums. Sometimes copying files back and forth off different storages can corrupt the files.
