I'm looking for some free backup software that supports media rotation. I have 3 hard drives that I wish to swap in and out of my server on a daily basis but I need some software that supports this while doing incremental or differential backups.

This is what i would do create a master backup on each hard drive name each on the same then set the backup software to do differential backups  to the backup drive.

You could try http://runtime.org/driveimage-xml.htm
