Backup software for Iomega on Vista

Posted on 2009-02-17
Last Modified: 2013-11-05
Have a 160 GB external hard drive from Iomega and have recently gotten a new laptop which is running Vista, when I pulled the software off of the Iomega site for the scheduled backup, it was not compatible with Vista. Any thoughts on alternative software options to complete the needed backup. Preferably free or pretty inexpensive if possible.
