Easy transfer is really for use with building a new computer and moving your profile and listing the apps  installed to verify agains tthe new computer.  

Cobian Backup is a good backup utility that is free of charge.  
This is also windows backup built into 7 you can configure.  you will mst likely want to backup your user profile directory c:\users\username
and then if you have data hiding anywhere else.

depending on the version of windows 7 that you have, the built in backup utility is excellent.
