Is there any free Windows 10 compatible backup program that, after having done a full copy of a directory, just copies new files&updated files to the same full copy folder (as in a incremental backup) when making new backups, but without creating a new seperate backup folder for every incremental backup?
I tried EaseUS first which was terrible as it stored files as one big file, and Coban which seems good but it creates a new folder for every incremental backup.
I don't want to use the Win10 backup as it adds a date to the file names and seems to have some other problems.

Another option is Microsoft's quick 'n' easy SyncToy which will do the job well. It's a bit old now but it works perfectly with Windows 10. The download you need is called SyncToySetupPackage_v21_x64.exe .

SyncToy relies on .NET Framework V2, so before you install it, head over to Control Panel -> Programs & Features -> Turn Windows Features on or off -> turn on .NET Framework 3.5 (includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0).
