Differential backup software

I'm looking for a backup program that runs under Win96 (and preferrably Win NT too) that provides a DIFFERENTIAL backup.   MSBackup under Win 3.11 had this option which is not available in any program I've tried under Win95.  I believe that the incremental backup under Win95 will not backup files _created_ since the last full backup.
Any recommendations of suitable (cheap) software?

this is  built into NT 3.51
this is from the help file of NT and best of all its free!

Backup operation      Description
Normal-All the selected files are backed up and marked as such on the disk.

Copy-All the selected files are backed up, but they are not marked as such on the disk.

Incremental-Among the selected files, only those that have been modified are backed up and marked as such on the disk.

Differential-The selected files that have been modified are backed up, but they are not marked as such on the disk.

Daily-Among the selected files, only those that have been modified that same day are backed up, but they are not marked as such on the disk.  (This can be useful if you want to take work home and need a quick way to select the files that you worked on that day)
