Looking For a Drive Replication Utility

I want to backup the contents of a 500GB Network drive weekly.  I do not have administrative or physical access to the drive.  Is there a good, fast, and free GUI utility that I can use fo this purpose?  Would it make more sense to use a Sync utility?

"... I do not have administrative or physical access ..." ==> this may, of course, mean that you are somewhat limited in what files you can access.   But assuming you can access everything you need, I'd just use a synchronization utility scheduled to run once a week (or on whatever schedule you select).   I like Syncback SE for this (http://www.2brightsparks.com/syncback/) => you can try the freeware version; but the SE version has a couple of added features that are nice for a very nominal cost.

... but since you did say "free" ==> just use the freeware version of SyncBack;  the only thing it will not copy that SE will are any locked files (e.g. your e-mail if your e-mail client is open).

Without admin rights you would also be limited in terms of what you want to backup to. To what type of hardware do you want to backup, and what OS are you using?

Actually, Syncback is just what I need.  Thanks Gary!
