I backed up an OLD windows 2003 server that runs SQL with Windows Backup. Am I covered?

We have an old Windows 2003 server and it looks like a drive has failed. We need to power the server down to replace it, but want to have a backup first. I logged into the Server and ran the built in Windows Backup. I made sure that ALL drives were checked, including the one with the databases. I have a good BKF file saved on another server now. It is 75GB which is about the size of all the data combined on the server. We are ready to shut the server down now, but are we covered for a worst case scenario? The backup looks good, but I know this was only the built in Windows Backup. Do I have a false sense of security?
