I assume you wish to make a backup of the Windows installation, as I'm sure you know already how to keep backups of your own files (these are in fact more precious than Windows since they are often irreplaceable).
First check in the list of programs (from the Start button) to see if there isn't a utility to create a set of master cd's from the backup partition. These, when created, will allow you to re-install Vista on to a new drive should the current one fail. I know Packard Bell provides such a utility on their machines, but not sure about Acer. Simply copying the contents of the backup partition to a DVD or several CDs will be no good since the PC won't know how to read the discs properly or what to do with them. You must do it by means of the master CD creation utility if one is supplied.
