You can't back up programs without doing an image backup. When programs are installed, different components are written into different directories and updates are made to the registry files. It's not a simple matter to search and find all this information.

MR provides you a file and directory backup -- that can be used to save music, docs, etc -- but not programs.

If you could post a screenshot of your Disk Management, we could better help on your backup. Be sure and expand the columns so we can read all of the print. You can use your Snipping Tool to post it. This tutorial will answer any questions you have about using it. Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums
