I am an admin user and I have an assignment where I need to backup a user's data to a folder in our company's shared network, all from my laptop (only because we don't want to disturb the client as much as possible). The user works in the same office area and is connected to our domain. How can I backup their user profile/data from my laptop without kicking them off their laptop? (we all use win7 professional x64)

Macrium Reflect [or its Pro version] might work for you -- it make backups on the fly [although I recommend minimum activity during its run].  I've not made backups under your circumstances, however, Macrium Reflect free or fee may be worth a try.
