    I like this software because it's very flexible on how you can backup and to what. Download and install the full version demo.

    Check out Todo Backup by EASEUS:

    It has an integrated scheduler, does incremental and differential backups, and support network drives:

    And best of all: it comes in several versions, one of which is even free and may suffice for your needs.

    Try crashplan.  It's free to use when backing up files from one device to another and it can handle multiple O/S's.

    Yeah if you just want a copy program , robocopy is perfect. Its free but you will have to find a script that works for your situation.

    You can install acronis on a machine
    Define the tasks and folders
    Whenever you want to run the backup
    When you want to run it
    What data you want
    and the destination
    You can even use the feature of incremental backups if you think that the full backup would consume your network bandwidth

    Also it's not true that backupassist only does ntbackup style. It will do file sync, rsync, zip file creation, exchange db to .pst, sql and disk image backup. It is very flexible and that is why I use it. As a matter of fact I just installed it 15 minutes ago on a clients server and created a 1 to 1 file sync from their data server to the backup server. It sync'ed 3gb of data in about 1 minute.
