Is anyone aware of backup software for a PC that on say Monday will do a full backup of specified directories and then each day do incrementals and on the second do the same, and then on the third week over write the first weeks data-sets?

First, why would you do incrementals?  The restores from incrementals are a huge pain.

Second, NTBackup (the built in backup) can do this - just write a script.

Yes you can try "comodo bakup" software which is free utility and provide scheduling backup as well as incremental or full backup . You can download it from below link

I'll say again, the built in NTBackup (included with all versions of 2000, 2003, XP Pro and NON-OEM versions of XP Home).

As an alternative, you can also try Cobain backup.
