Windows 7: Looking for a good Backup utility

Now that I've installed and tried to use it, I regret to say that it will be useless for me, because while it could see an external eSATA drive as a source, it could not see it as a destination. In fact, the only thing that it could see as a destination was my USB card reader. I assume that it would also see a USB Flash drive, but neither of them would be big enough for my purposes. I guess they think that everybody has a external USB hard drive.

FreeFileSync that I posted earlier in the thread should do it.
