Does Windows 7 have differential backups on the Home Premium? I have Acronis third party backup which I will use if it's better?

I have home premium and the back ups are incremental. Many here think Acronis (its not free) is better. The first home premium back up is in a dated folder. Subsequent backups are just incremental and placed in the folder with the original date.

Which version of TI do you have? 2010 is the only one that is stated to be compatible with Windows 7. I'm not certain if 11 will work or not, but 10 definitely will not.

I don't know what TI means but I have Acronis 2010 which does an image of your C drive nicely. Windows 7 likes to image the entire hard drive which is why I won't use it. It also makes an image of your data backup which I don't like so I think I will do my backups with Acronis 2010 which cost about $40 but is worth it if you lose a anything and the backups are more controled.
