Did you know you can use PowerShell to back up the system state?
Understanding the Computer Restore cmdlets
One of the easiest ways to ensure system reliability is to create a restore point prior to making potentially damaging changes. In this way, if a problem arises, it is rather simple to roll back the changes. In Windows PowerShell, the easy way to create a restore point is to use the Windows PowerShell cmdlets. These cmdlets require administrator rights (due to access to protected registry keys and other vital configuration files). Therefore, you need to right-click the Windows PowerShell icon and select Run As Administrator from the Action menu. Keep in mind that these cmdlets only work on client systems later than Windows XP. These cmdlets do not work on server versions of the operating system.
