Need Backup software for Windows 7 - full backups and incrementals of data only

Need a backup software that will do a full back up of data (OS back ups not necessary) once a week, and incrementals maybe every day or every other day.

In Windows XP, the built in Backup software worked great. Full backups and incrementals worked perfectly.
Not so much for Windows 7.

Can anyone recommend a back up software for a user who is not tech savvy, and can easily go to the drive where the backups are and just grab the files (if need be) if he/she deleted accidentally? Ideally I dont want any compression or other formatting issues. Just copy the files over to a secondary drive (like Windows XP used to do) and easy to open and copy back again.

Need help!

Another excellent app is Acronis True Image, but it is not free.

We have deployed Cobian backup at our client sites and it works considerably well compared to the other products on the web/market today.

Use the built in backup but do not create a system image.

SyncBack made a direct copy (no compression or other formats) and worked perfectly.

Thank you Rob G for the code for the batch file.
