Best FREE Back-Up Utility?

  NETCHRIS 23:32 22 Apr 2008

What do you guys think is the best free back-up utility. I just need to back-up:

- My Documents
- Pictures
- Downloads
- Videos
- Favorites
- Music

Those folders pretty much only. So yeah, something simple that just syncronizes selected folders to my external 100 GB drive. I got 320 GB drive by the way and have use 200 GB of it.

Ah the Vista back-up utility is fine. But under the checked boxes of things you wanna back up it says:


and such...

Are these the User folders Pictures, Videos and Music or just files that are that type. Cause I wanna back up my exact Picture, Videos and Music folders. But not do it manually.

Syncback (not SE) or EZ Backitup. For most uses, Syncback is way out in front - very tweakable. Use EZ Backitup if you have to gather files/folders from lots different paths into one backup routine.
