Personally, I would recommend an external drive instead. Then use either SuperDuper! (cheap) or CarbonCopyCloner (free) to create a bootable backup.

Three problems solved in one:
a backup
a bootable backup to continue working when the internal drive dies until you have the time to get it replaced
a bootable backup with all your tools to troubleshoot and/or restore the internal drive in case of a faulty update, app install, etc.

16 GB flash drive: $20-$40
500 GB external drive: $60-$70
1 TB external: <$100

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
