The built-in Vista backup program is, as you've discovered, not very
flexible. I suggest you use a different program. For simple backing up, I
like Second Copy from www.centered.com
. It is inexpensive ($29.95), will
copied whatever you want to wherever you want, and does not put the copied
files into a proprietary format. You would need to check to make sure it
works on x64.
Another great backup solution is to purchase Acronis True Image. The program
can image your files and do incremental backups. I'm sure TI works on x64.
