Working on a quite large project and spending a lot of time creating vocal harmonies using the VariAudio (which I think is great by the way) I decided to do I project back up to a new folder. I was surprised and disappointed to find that all my edits/Harmonies were lost when opening from the backed up project. I still have the original project saved so not the end of the world but a little worrying Is this a bug or is it user error. I’m searching the manual now.

That behaviour exists since VA exists. I don't even think it's a bug, it was simply forgotten to implement
Flatten or bounce the VA'd material before you backup. Or export/import the vocal tracks as track archive. Be sure to use the 'prepare archieving' (something like that) function in the pool in your backup'd project to include the files into the audio folder.
