Couple ways to do a backup without root.

Use adb,
eg. adb backup -all -apk -nosystem

Then pull files you want to backup
eg. adb pull /sdcard/

Or use helium app available from play store which is basically a gui for the adb backup command.

Thanks. I notice the -nosystem command, does that mean it won't back up system details?

I suppose my final question is Windows 8 support. I saw a thread a while back when you have to do something extra for the drivers and I can't seem to see it in the sticky threads.
