I tried to back up on the D: drive and it said I didn't have permission, tried the G drive and got this error:

ERR 8/10/2009 5:03:27 PM Error while creating or updating the archive "G:\C 2009-08-10 17;03;17.zip": Cannot create file "

How am I supposed to back up my stuff im the admin :/

Okay, then it's not a Vista permission problem.
However, you might need to check to which user the process is assigned to, and check the permissions.

This might be also interesting (check the chapter "Permissions are the Alpha and the Omega of a modern OS"):

I don't have experience with Cobian myself, so all I can provide you with are results of searches.
Maybe you would also be able to find some hints in the Cobian forum: http://www.cobiansoft.com/forum/

Thinks to check:

From the Cobian support forum:
Is G: a dvd drive? if so, direct backup to removable media could fail, because it is not directly supported.

Also:
Zip files have problems with long paths.

Additionally:
Then the volume that you are trying to snapshot must be supported by the system: It must be a NTFS volume (not FAT or FAT32), local (not on a remote machine) and native (not a TrueCrypt volume or some other emulated volume)
