Can you provide more details - do you really mean a "floppy"?
Using a CD or DVD then you can do a backup image using the Macrium Reflect pe recovery disk to recover and make images. For free Macrium Reflect you will need to do a 1.7GB download of the Windows WAIK tools. Macrium will hold your hand in doing this.
or else you can try Hirens Boot CD.

...and also what do you mean exactly by 'backup'.

are you wanting to backup your documents, or image/ghost your operating system? they aren't the same thing.

The link before includes something called "g4u" -- which CAN be run from Floppy Disks. There may be others there as well, but that's all I had the time to read:

Symptoms: Since the installation of W7 a few weeks ago, once every 60 minutes (but not at the same time each day) something spins the floppy drive. Also, sometimes another data drive that spins down with inactivity is started up as well, so it could be that all of the drives (4) are briefly...
