After looking over the web for this info I would say NO, that Windows 7 does not do incremental backups.
But as stated above by everyone else here I also use Acronis True Image as it's the best & fastest backup system I've ever used!
This is why everyone uses it!
I've been using Acronis now for the last 5 years & they have never failed me!
Best of all, is my average backup is only 7.6Gbs & this is a complete OS partition backup with all the crucial programs & files I need to put everything back to working order which btw takes all of 6 minutes!
Because the compression ratio is so good with Acronis you can afford to have multiple redundant backups of your system.
I have 3 at all times & do daily backups of my system which takes 5 minutes for a Complete backup.
Kicks butt on the Windows 7 backup system on speed, space & time.
