Need a handy backup program from local to a network drive

Hello,
I usually save files to my local hard drive, since our network is so slow. However, only the network gets backed up, not my local drive. Do you know of a handy program that would allow me to mark documents for backup to another location, and then back them automatically, without me having to do backups manually?

     Microsoft Backup is capable of doing this and it is a built-in feature of windows. You can access it in Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Backup
      It is also easy to use and has scheduling options.
