This question already has an answer here:

I installed Ubuntu alongside Windows. If I don't have an internet connection, how can I manually install the audio plugins, some drivers and stuff like that? Is there any offline process where I can have all my software in some folder and use them whenever I format the system?

You don't need to install drivers or audio plugins or stuff like that, in most cases all of it cames with linux kernel. To offline installation of some software you will need another machine with same Ubuntu version. If you mean applications settings, than it stored in your home folder. If you made a separate partition for it your settings should be saved when you correct reinstall system.

"in most cases all of it cames with linux kernel" is not correct for Ubuntu because certain software cannot be included in the iso for legal reasons. These, restricted extras, need to be installed separately. –  user25656 Feb 18 '13 at 6:13

Yes, you can, but you will need another machine with same Ubuntu version and internet connection. askubuntu.com/q/974/22548 –  Dmitry Misharov Feb 18 '13 at 6:21
