Restoring the save .NCD files isn't copy and paste, but you could restore them; however, I don't think I would. When the dealer programs you car, many of the ECU's will have the firmware updated, which means it will use a different CAFD now, and your .ncd backup based on the old CAFD won't match. After dealer programming, I would once again, read all ECU's, and backup all the uncoded .ncd files, and then FDL code everything from scratch, and then back up the coded .ncd files.
