    You have CWM. First thing you do once you've got your phone setup and configured is to perform a "nandroid" backup, which creates a complete image of your phone and files at that moment. It's like creating a norton ghost image for a PC. In any case, you boot into recovery with the volume and power keys and you will see a backup and restore option. Choose backup. It will take a while so make sure you have a good charge.

    It will create a file that you can move to a PC for safekeeping. Should anything go crazy, you can restore the system to the exact point in time and everything will be as it was. You'll find the files you want to copy off in /clockworkmod/backup/<date>.

    Enjoy! :D
