Windows 7 Backup

I was playing with Windows 7 today and I noticed that the backup utility is much improved over Vista. Two big things:
  • You can backup just specific files and folders. In Vista, it was done on a per volume (drive letter) basis.
  • The disk you back up to does not need to be dedicated to backup. So, you can just keep a folder for backups. Vista took a whole partition and then hid it from you so that you couldn't put other data on it.
