"This is more a 'backup disaster recovery solution' than simply a 'backup tool'.

Search the web for 'incremental bdr' for a bunch of companies offering this exact functionality. We have large clients using the same solution and it works flawlessly. Unfortunately, I doubt that you will find anything close to free.

StorageCraft sell a product called ShadowProtect Desktop Edition which does the job. There is a good review of a slightly older version here which gives you a basic explanation on how it works.

$80 is 'super cheap' to me for a backup disaster recovery solution, but I guess I'm not the one you'll need to convince :-)"
