5GB that needs backing up, help!

I'm planning to install Windows 7 + OSX together and I have 100GB on a partition on the main drive i'm going to format. I have nothing big enough to take that amount of data and it's all pretty much essential stuff. What will I do?

Edit: Deleted unessential stuff and i've narrowed it down to 36GB.
Edit: Just 13GB now!
Edit: Absolute bare minimum, just 5GB.

Just to confirm, do you mean a Hackintosh or is it a Mac?

I think Hackintoshing is illegal and it can do damage to your system and most systems are incompatible. If you want OS X get a Mac.

5GBs is not all that much. In case you have a DVD ROM that supports RW Disks you just get 2 of those and put your backup there otherwise just use 2 regular DVDs (or 1 Dual layer if supported).
Another possibility would be an GB Flashdrive/USB Stick
To be on the safe side, just run a verify before you delete the data

Running a Hackintosh will not damage your hardware. However, it is technically illegal, and forums that allow discussions on that topic usually don't stick around very long.
