I love my e-sword and have many notes

i would like to backup all my files that are in e-sword on a thumb drive or a separate hard drive.

can I do this by copying the e-sword folder is Program Files?

yes. That's what I did. If you still have the .exe file you downloaded from e-Sword.net, you might back that up as well.

Talking about backup. How could I backup my bookmarks?, you know, the ribbon where one bookmark differents passages. Each time I've had to reinstall I've lost all of them.

You'll need to copy both the program folder, and the user folder.

For WINE on Linux, the directories are something like:
  • /home/ user name /e-Sword
  • /home/ user name /.wine_Esword/drive_c/Program Files/e-Sword
  • /home/ user name /.wine/drive_c/Program Files/e-Sword
For Windows, the second one translates into c:\Program Files(x86)\e-Sword, or c:\Program Files\e-Sword;
I don't remember how the first one translates into Windows nomenclature.
c:\Users and Documents\ user name\Documents\e-Sword.

e-Sword is not a portable application for Windows.
e-Sword can run as a portable application under WINE and Linux.

Before backing up the directories, take a look at how much disc space they consume, and ensure that you have at least that much free space on the drive you are backing it up to.
(FWIW, my e-Sword directory is 640 GB in size.)
