Windows 7 Backup

I want to backup my C drive (primary) but when using the Windows Backup and Restore feature, the application copies all my internal drives and then bombs while copying the other drives. How do I backup just the C Drive on my computer?

    Windows will only allow you to do this if there are no entries that show system files on the other drives.  If you installed applications, or moved profile information, it will see them and want to make that part of the back up.  

    How about something like ?  It can handle doing backups and is free for personal use.
