GUI based Backup & Recovery Software

Looking for backup & recovery software that takes incremental backups and stores only deltas to an external hard drive or any other location. And recovers in need.

Tried Backup & Recover by OpenSUSE and its not working fine and taking long times. Also its not incremental. No directory or file comparison included in this version. I am not looking for Ghost Writer kind of thing but a simple software that clones directories and stores any modifications in a very intelligent and storage efficient manner. If document management is included as one of the feature, its an added advantage. Any suggestions, please?

Here is a listing of backup tools:

My preference is the command line tool DAR (which also has a GUI frontend called Kdar). The tutorial which describes Dar is here:

Depending on your programming skills, you could also use the Dar API to add/alter features to suit your needs.

Explore the Dar website; look into the Documentation.
