Backup Network Connected Drive on a windows 7 pro machine

We took over a client that has an old HP NAS that they map to from their local machines and map F: to this network share.  The machine that I am working off of is a windows 7 Pro machine.  I went to put comodo backup on it to backup the c drive as well as the f drive so that they have their data backed up.  However, I found that comodo doesn't backup network drives.  Are there any free solutions out there that will backup network drives?  I am backing everything up to an external hard drive.  I can probably set up a backup batch file, but I would like it to be gui if possible to make it easy for the client.  If, however, I have to use a batch file, and schedule it to run, does it have to run with an account that has a password on it?  I remember in XP that you couldn't schedule a job with an account that had no password.  Thanks for your help.

Kendzast - Does this NT Backup allow me to backup network drives?

Kdearing - That is not a free solution.  You only get the 30 day trial.
