Im backing up the entire c:\ drive , which is the only drive on my domain controller. Where is the system state located in the case that i might need it from one of my backups?

You should backup the system state separately, there is no system state folder, you can see it in the GUI on Matt's blog

You need to backup the System State separately this is not just a folder location.
