Well I need to format my Windows 7 PC with a wubi installation. Is there a way I can backup the virtual hard drive files, then format my pc, install Wubi and put the hard drive files back?

I would like to install Ubuntu 12.04 on my computer from Windows using Wubi, but I have a problem with it. Firstly I mount a CD image in a virtual drive via Daemon tool. Next I start Wubi, fill all installation fields, and then I click next. Then Wubi starts to extract files, etc.
I accidentally removed the current video driver with apt-get remove nvidia-current. That lead to me only seeing this on a reboot.
Which leads to my question: I read up on migrating my Wubi install, and I think it's time for me to format over XP (don't know why I hold on to it, since I have Windows 7 on that tower as well) and install Ubuntu on my second hard drive.
I am posting my question here since I have a wubi-installation of Ubuntu.
My system is setup like this:
80 GB hard disk with Windows XP on C:/, with Ubuntu 10.04 as a WUBI install, 2 other partitions just for data.(So very less data on C:/). Everything was perfect for more than a year.
Just installed Ubuntu 12.04 via WUBI to my lenovo ideapad laptop. I originally wanted to dual boot with my windows7, but the windows7/lenovo combination is configured to take up 4 primary partitions, and my hard drive is a bit to small for a logical partition install.
I've installed ubuntu 12.04 LTS as a wubi installation in Windows 7, its running fairly well.
will Wubi installation cause any problem, will I be able to access any files created in wubi Ubuntu in windows 7?
