In general, in XP, you can backup the Documents and Settings folder and you'll save everything that you've got. But, that results in a lot of stuff saved that you don't need. You won't need to backup the Default User profile, nor any of the various services profiles. The All Users profile contains the Shared Documents, Pictures, Music, etc.
Some programs will point to other areas (email clients are the most common) and it'll pay to double check your profile location if you're using an alternative browser (such as Firefox/Opera/etc). So it'd help if you scanned the contents for your C: drive (and others) by using Windows Explorer.
