    Would it work to backup my entire c drive (which I use for windows 7 and apps) and then upgrade to windows 8 and if I don't like it, use my backup c drive to return to the way it was (back to windows 7 etc...)? (i plan on using acronis true image to back up my c drive)...

    why not just in win 7 resize your hard drive and create a new partition and install windows 8 to the new partition ? Then you can have both :)

    Yes, dual booting is the answer.
