Cloning VM images without all the drives

I am running VMware 5 with vSphere client; I currently have a virtual serve that is a Windows 2008 server, this server currently has about 7 drives including the C drive I wanted to make a Clone of the server so that when the programmer is making changes if something happens I have a copy of the server. Is there a way to make a clone of the VM only including the C drive witch is the driver with the O/S

Is your C: on its own .vmdk?

If it is then you can take a copy when the VM is shutdown.
