Full Backup of PC Running Virtual Windows XP Under 64-bit Windows 7 Pro on a T410

I have a QuadCore (Intel i7) T410 with a 320GB HDD running 64-bit W7Pro.  Under that environment I am running a separate Virtual Windows XP system.  The T410 hardware and Virtual PC system allows me to see the primary C: drive of the T410 from either the W7 or XP environment, and the Virtual PC implementation is essentially based on the existence of 3 very large disk files on the primary drive which contain the entire Virtual PC image.


I want to back up my HDD in such a way that I can use the restore function to re-install both the W7 system image and all of its programs and files, and the Virtual PC system image as well.  What is the best way to do this.?? 


(PS -- ignore the old system config associated with my profile -- I will update as soon as I finish this post...)

Lenovo backup utility will not backup virtual Operating System, you may need to look for some third party software.
