Full Backup & Restore for Windows Vista

I'm looking for a freeware or low cost application that will backup everything, including registry on Windows Vista Home Premium and to restore from a CDROM disk. The destination is an external hard drive on USB 2.0.

"You're looking for a scheduled incremental backup, this feature is not included in Clonezilla for a very good reason. Clonezilla (and other programs like it) are being used to create a reliable emergency drive backup which should not be compromised. if you run such software automatically and unattended you might destroy a perfectly good drive image by overwriting it with an infected image.

You should create a drive image and then keep it somewhere safe and sound, after that, run scheduled incremental backups of the user data (that's where partitioning the drive comes in handy)."
