I need help trying to dual boot windows 7


I have a Toshiba A-505 laptop running 64-bit windows 7. I want to install Ubuntu for security and functionality. However I still want to use Windows 7 for business and school, it has all my documents and several applications I can't afford to lose, is there any way I can install Ubuntu and still maintain all my windows 7 data and apps and be able to run windows 7 in Virtualbox or a similar app?
