Data backup software

I'm looking for some backup software that will back up everything on my data drive tonight, and keep that in a May 9 2010 folder; do the same thing tomorrow in a May 10 2010 folder; and so on until the destination drive is full and then delete the oldest. In essence, I want to find a program that does the same thing my old tape drive used to do :)

I've looked around quite a bit, and can't find a package that definitely says that it will do exactly what I want. I'm offering 500 points to someone who can tell me that they have tried a program, and it will do just what I want it to.

What OS (operating System) are you running on this computer?  Standard Windows backup software starting in XP can accomplish this very easily by scheduling daily backup jobs to disk or tape.  

There are also many third party backup programs that can accomplish this.  What is the OS?

You can accomplish using the built in Windows 7 backup application by scheduling a daily backup job using the system date variable %date% using a batch file.  

Here is a link to example using the Xcopy command but you can also use Windows 7 backup in a command line and create a batch file. sdclt.exe. Located in C:\Windows\System32

Then subsequently you could have another daily scheduled batch file that would be a little more complex but it could check the disk size before the backup and then delete the oldest backup file in the folder.
