need advice on how to backup remote users laptops to our server via VPN

Hi, I have 30 odd users that have no form of backup if the laptop gets stolen. I was thinking of providing these users with a backup folder in the mydocs folder to start with.
I have some experience with using group policies and roaming profiles to do a form of folder sync. But in the past, users who have massive of itunes, etc. would take ages to sync over a VPN.
Ideally, I want the users to copy what ever files they need into the backup folder.
Can you recommend a solution that may not take up to much bandwidth, but would be fully automatted.

I was sort of after more of a free solution using folder sync's and stuff.
Mozy is quite cheap for what i need as an option, thanks.

There is no free solution that will compete with mozy.  

You could use offline files over VPN, but that would require joining the remote machines to your domain.
