Windows 7: Incremental backup to network share?

Incremental backup to network share?

Okay guys, don't hate me if I type something wrong.

Basically the problem is, I want to backup my work/study laptop to my home PC every sunday over the network. I have done a full backup once (45GB) and want to make only incremental backups from now on. But I did read it's not possible?
Is it true, or did that 'problem' already has been fixed in Windows 7 SP1?

If not, it does a full backup every time. How can I make it do only incremental backups?

Thanks!

I believe that this is still the case. You would need a third party solution to do that.

You have any recommendations? I tried some before I used the native Windows Backup but can't recall the names of it. They need to be professional, good looking. Giving a familiar feeling when you see it. Not some unknown inside company fabrication. If it's good I don't mind buying it.

EDIT:
Used this one, http://www.novastor.com/en/software/windows-backup, but it sucked like ***.

I'm not sure which free backup tools allow incremental. I know that Macrium Free doesn't which is why I use the paid version. If I remember correctly EasUS ToDo does. Best free backup software. Hard drive backup and recovery, image and clone freeware - EaseUS Todo Backup Free
