What is a simple home backup software which works with a variety of OSes?

I need software that will take incremental backups of a few folders on my drive and back them up to an external HDD. I want to have a feature where I can 'mount' the backup and get files out of it should I need to. Acronis does this but unfotunately doesn't work properly on my setup... :-( Any ideas what I can use?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

It would be nice to know why acronis does not work on your setup, maybe that problem could be fixed or at least no one would reccommend a solution that leads to similar problems. – Baarn Mar 11 '12 at 17:08
Syncback from 2brightsparks is a fairly nice program that does this. – kobaltz Mar 11 '12 at 17:18

Use Genie Timeline Home. Its free edition is also available.

It does incremental backup very smoothly & features Time Machine of Mac OS X. Means, you can move back & forth in time to access your file system snapshots at that time. Its the true power of incremental backup (beyond storage saving etc).

Many external drives ship with software that does this type of backup. Western Digital and Maxtor on many. I am sure others as well. What make external drive do you have? Check the vendor site.
