The simplest way is to backup to an external drive.

I recently bought one of these Ex Harddrive very useful for carrying about. but if you have a spare harddrive then a cheap caddy will do. something like these Enclosure. or you can use one of these to back up your harddrive to another PC Adapter

gengiscant That portable external drive looks really good value for money.

What are you trying to back up? I only back up my docs, photos, and important files, which usually don't amount to much.

If the Hard drive is going, you need to get it done fast. if its anything else, you can usually access the hard drive on another PC.

Get a Ubuntu or Linux CD then you can run it live and be able to access your hard drive, etc.
