Anyone have any suggestions for Freeware/low cost file back-up software I can use with my VERY basic USB external HD? I'd really like a scheduling feature and file comparison so I don't have to figure out what's new in the folder every time I back stuff up.

Try Karen's Replicator:

if you're running windowsxp, then there's already backup software on it, and you can use the task schedule program to run that with.

start>all programs>accessories>system tools>backup

that has a lot of options for free backup software,
I use linux mainly, and backup using a cron job. there's not a lot of stuff on my windows machine that I would need in case of a system failure, so sorry I can't help you out more.
