Backup software for Iomega on Vista

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.

Cobian Amanita backup is a completely free backup utility that can be scheduled, passworded, compressed etc

It takes about 5 minutes to set up and can be run with different priviledges depending on user accounts etc.
Hope that Helps!
