Hi Sandy I believe this question has been asked and answered. Please see the link.
I have used the Chris O'Brien tool and it worked amazingly. You will be able to keep security setting if needed or if you need to move content from one location to the next it will preserve all of the metadata associated with the content ,created, created by, modified, modified by, security customizations and also version history. It is wonderful!
You could also do this through the UI please see this link.
There is not such method available OOTB which will just backup the content of the site collection. But you can think about the following workaround.
