Can also backup /system and /data like this.

You may need to start "adb root" first though

Ensure phone is off.
Hold vol down + Power until it vibrates
Press VOL up twice and press power (Vibrates again)
adb root
adb shell
mount /system
mount /data
abd pull /data c:\nexus\data
adb pull /system c\:nexus\system
