If by "softwares" you mean applications, basically, you can't. While you certainly could make a backup of an installer file or an installation archive (what the app used to install itself), that would not contain any of the associated registry entries.

So basically, if you later want to "restore" the application, all you can do is image off the partition -- and even then, you will not later be able to select an application to restore; instead, you will have to restore the entire partition. NOTE: Some backup solutions allow you to "mount" the backup and then copy individual files and folders, but this will not restore an application.
