Backing up tends to apply to that that you constanly use and update, such as your main harddrive. As you add programs and files to the drive you would want to back it up on a regular basis so that, should ill winds blow, you would have a sourceto recreate that replacement harddrive. A backup could be an archive.
Archiving is more towards historical storage. You would archive the little used files or those that take up tons of drive space,that you still want to keep, off your harddrive for possiblefuture use and to free up that drive space.
