Is it possible to use the programmer to read back either the contents of the EPROM and save it as a POF or the conrents of FPGA and save it as a SOF with USB-Blaster?

Yes, you can read back the flash data and save it as pof. 

Check for Examine option in the Tools->programmer-> Examine. 

Refer previous threads. 


Let me know if this has helped resolve the issue you are facing or if you need any further assistance.
