Do you want to back the database up? If so, use SQL Servers inbuilt backup functions as it will do it properly. Either that or buy a specialised package like BackupExec to do it.

Windows Backup is to back up general things, not databases.

No just database, but whole server for disaster recovery.

I would back the database up separately anyway. For DR see here:

No.  Not unless you are prepared to shutdown the SQL Server service (this is very rarely a good idea).
