Making backups of valuable information on your computer is an important system administration task and it's good that you bring up that issue here. Too often people forget to make backups and only realize the necessity of it when it is too late.
Looking at the products you mentioned, you are probably looking for a solution to backup files from a Windows computer. There are many backup programs available, both free and paid solutions and to lead you in the right direction some extra information might help. For example, do you want to backup files on a server or desktop? only personal files or also system files? the ability to make images of your disk in case you need to do a full restore of your computer after a crash? etc.
You mentioned that you want to FTP the files to another location. Is this within the local network or over the Internet? If you backup over the Internet, you may need a solution which uses encryption over FTP, to be sure that no-one is able to look at sensitive data during the transfer.
