Not unless it's already in a specific file, I don't think: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms179316%28v=sql.105%29.aspx

Which two backups? You would just carry out a full backup if you wanted to back up the full database.

how can i get full database??

It's not clear what you mean.

Before you go any further you should try to read this book http://www.sqlservercentral.com/articles/books/89519/ (the e-book/pdf version is free of charge)

You can back up the entire database and then delete the older data. You can't take a backup of part of a database unless the database has multiple files or filegroups and has been designed to allow partial backups to work effectively.

This introduces the concept of the a partial backup. As everyone has already stated, you can only do this if you design the database and it's structure to support the concept.

That one is quite misleading and has no discussion of the considerations or requirements. I'd avoid it.
