Can anyone recommend a free incremental back up programme?It is to back up my files and some photos.My laptop has Vista Home Premium SP2 with NIS 2010.

EZBackitup -s a freebie that does exactly what you want in XP. I've no experience with Vista.

You set up which files you wish to back up and where to save them.
You can also choose whether to update files or overwrite them.
You can save your choice as a named procedure, or alter any of the parameters each time you run it.

Thanks very much for your response but on looking into it,it is just for XP.

why not use the back up utility that comes with Vista?

Its free and works on my vista PC's,but my only problem is Vista Ultimate + all my apps needs 100+ Gbs hard drive volume & the backup of it all takes forever.I have tried TrueImage(15hrs to clone a 250Gb drive to a 500Gb drive that then failed to boot,refuse to be repaired & finally had to be loaded from DVD then install my apps)several linux based apps(between 1 day & 6 days according to the various apps)but lengthy backup times seems to be the penalty for using freeware apps or Vista.

EZBack-it-up is old (by today's standards) and the current version 2.0.1 mentions most Windows but doesn't mention Vista.

However, it can be removed like any of the Add/Remove range, and it is in no way invasive.

In your shoes I'd be tempted to try it and if it doesn't work or throws errors at you, it is soon banished.

But if it does work then you have full easy control, and a few seconds only to wait except for the first time with everything new to the backup folder.
