Click open My Computer, then right click on C or D drive that you wanted backup, select properties, and click on Tool tab. You should see the BACKUP option there.

Hi Nobus:
     I think XXcopy is what my boss uses. But its kind of complicated to backup the drive. I wonder how good the windows backup works..
