Depends. Yes, you can copy your save files to somewhere else, safe. The major flaw with that is, however, you'll need to remember or write down what mods are installed with any particular save, so that, if you have to go back to an old save like that you will have the correct mods installed for that save file. LOTS of work to do that though. I haven't found an easy way yet to manage my mods progression in relation to save files.

Mod Organizer will tell you what mods are required for each save and whether or not they are missing!

You can copy your skyrim to another location. Done that several of times.
You can do the same whith all steam files.
Your Saves are in documents\My_games\Skyrim

If you are planning to reinstall your Pc so save your documets map.

And Mumbles What? Need to check that out.
