best backup software for Vista Home Ultimate that will allow me toselect files and folders to backup

I basically have 10 GB of music, 5 GB of pictures and 1 GB of documents
plus a couple of folders on my Desktop (containing downloads) that I
would like to be able to backup. I have a restore CD to restore to
factory settings...it's my data I'm worried about.

Vista doesn't let me select the files and folders I want.

I don't want to spend a lot of $$ but I do want easy backup and restore.

What are my best options?

Consider investing in a good external drive.

I have an external HD plugged into my XP desktop but Vista won`t backup
to the external HD plugged into an XP machine....I don`t want to be
switching the external HD between laptop desktop all the time...so I`m
going to use DVD`s on laptop...but want good backup software for it.

Good point. I didn't know that. I assume you can reinstall Vista, install
Novabackup, then restore from there.

Hey i think i found what are you looking for they don't have any
expensive prices and they offer 3gb of free online back storage and also
a free software , they are called Dmailer
http://www.dmailer.com/dmailer-backup.html ,
I'm using Mozy. It also gives you 2 gigs free.

Do a google search *online backup & reviews*. I found it interesting
