I didn't like the built in Windows backup, and I want something that copies the data from my internal hard drives to my external backup drive. (I also have non-local storage for the irreplaceable stuff.)

I'm currently using Cobain Backup, but it doesn't seem to get the meaning of "incremental." It's making a full copy of the source drives every time the backup runs, instead of just updating the original backup, despite being set to an incremental backup.

I just want it to copy changed files to the original directory once a day. That's it. No compression, no obfuscation, just a straight copy that I can copy back should a drive crash on me. Is there any decent free software that does that?

I use Crashplan. It does do compression, and you have to use the client to do restores, but it's been very reliable in the three or four years I've been using it.
