I'm not able to select everything (personal folders and my email account.  Does this mean I have to create multiple backup files (i.e. multiple pst files)?

Yes I always make a seperator .pst file for each item

IE Inbox
Calendar
Notes

You can to the same procedure I gave you just make sure you change the name of the file being saved
Just use the file names like ibox.pst notes.pst etc.
