    I've been using Comodo Backup for a while now, it's free, doesn't come with too many bells and whistles but it does the job:

    Allway Sync has caught my attention recently. I use to sync files between multiple rigs. It's free, has a massive set of scheduling options, and can be set to update, overwrite, use a master copy, update on change etc etc... Deffinately worth a look.

    What he said, it's simple, provided by MS for free and does the job.

    Hmm for some reason I always thought it was XP only. Turns out it's for Vista too. I'll start using it again :D
