Windows 7: Problem With Backup

Problem With Backup

So I lost my original system image and I decided to create a new backup. My computer has two 500GB hard drives. The D drive is mostly used for games, and has most of it's space used, so I created a partition on the C drive with a lot of space, 150GB. The problem is that I can't create a system image since it says that would require up to 415 GB. Is it enough to just to a backup of all the C files or is there some other way to do a system image? Also I really can't get access to an external hard drive. Thanks.
