Can Somebody Teach Me How Do I Back up C Drive Before Converting to GPT?

I need to convert my drive to GPT, or else I can't update Windows, but I don't know how to back up files. Is it as simple as just copying them to my other drive? And what files do I copy? Can I copy all the files and paste them into my other drive? I don't really know what I'm doing here, so I need help.

Nowadays, the need to update the Windows system to a higher version, like Windows 11, push the user to convert the disk to GPT. However, most methods will delete the data on the partitions during the conversion process. Therefore, backing up the whole disk before taking action is vital. This post will offer a solid way to convert without erasing data and guide you on backing up data.
