Windows 7: Simple Document Backup

Simple Document Backup

I have been using Memeo Backup for some time, and it seems to do what I would like - it monitors my activity, and when it identifies a new or changed document it copies it to a largs exernal disk that I use for backup. However, it seems to be badly affecting performance and so on (in that the performance difference between running with it on and off is significant). I thus would like to replace it, and i suspect that I need something more passive (that is it backs up my documents at a set time) as the think I like about Memeo (Monitoring changes) is the thing that slows my system down.

Can anyone make any suggestions which system I should use? My requirements are fairly simple:
I would like to be able to define the directories I back up
I would like it only to back up changed or added files (i.e only do a delta backup)
I would like to be able to recover individual files as well as the whole system
I would like to be able to set up when I want it to back up
Would you suggest the inbuild Windows backup system?

The inbuilt windows backup will do what you want but it decides for itself whether to do incremental or full backups. I use FreeFileSync which gives more control. The link is in my sig.

If you want 'whole system' recovery, you have to use imaging which includes the other recovery options too.
