Well, as long as it is R&R backup, changing the operating system to Windows XP won't help you. I don't know if Windows Vista has integrated some sort of backup program (I use Windows XP), but if so and you have problem with space, then I suggest doing backups on a external HDD. If you don't have external HDD, then the most versatile solution would be creating separate partition for Windows Vista and programs, and a second one for data. This way the backup program (either in Vista or the R&R) will not have to backup whole partition with the data you don't need to backup, or important data that already have a backup. It will backup only the smaller partition with Vista and save it onto the second one.
