As anupnellip wrote, windows backup tool is very powerful, go to start, run , type ntbackup and press enter. You need to create an Emergency Recovery Disk. You will need only one floppy 1.44MB. Also you can choose to backup windows folder ( more disk space rq ).

Creating ERD, windows will only store information about version of your system files!!
