    You can use Disk Utility to create partitions and these are fairly comprehensive instructions for moving user folders.

    However, a couple of things to consider:
    1. It's very rare that OSX need a clean install
    2. Your solution won't protect you from disk failure

    Personally, I'd go for a physical, external backup disk using Time Machine and/or an online backup solution such as DropBox to protect your data from harm.
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .
