there seem to be a lot of stuff available - can somebody advise opinions on handiest one simply for backing up and then quickly updating backups documents and pics to a usb flash drive ?

I just drag and drop any backups, no other software required, if I want multiple backups I just alter the name of the file slightly.

yeh, but if you just have a few files that have changed, and you probably don't know which ones, you don't wnat to go thro' the whole business do you ?

SyncToy from Microsoft is free and should do exactly what you want.
