Create a system backup within Windows 7

Windows 7 (and Vista) have an option to create a system image backup.  Click on the Start Menu and type “backup” in the search dialog box.  Select the Backup and Restore menu item.

It is easier to create a system image using an external USB hard drive.  If you have one connected, select the device under the hard drive drop-down box.  Click on the Next button once a selection has been made.
