Backup Raspberry Pi SD card

I don't have much yet on my RasPi SD card but there are things I want to make sure I don't lose, like wireless configuration, some code and others. So I wanted to backup my SD card. Found a lot of resources on the web but most deal with Linux. This stackexchange answer has great directions for Windows - here are the steps I used and it worked great:
  1. Download Win32 Disk Imager.
  2. Create the file path you wish to use to save your image. (like C:\RasPi_Bkp)
  3. Run Win32 Disk Imager
  4. Browse to your backup file path spot, and type a file name.
  5. Click save
  6. Make sure the device shown in the drop down to the right of your file path is the one you want to back up.
  7. Click "Read"
  8. Wait.
