Auto Backup for Macs

Auto Backup for Macs

Any recommendations for a backup program for Macs that lets you specify to backup specified folders on a daily basis? I bought my son a 640 GB external hard drive for his Mac, and we are chagrined to not find anything built into the Mac OS to do this. There are some freeware programs out there, but if you can recommend one, that would be fine. It doesn't have to be clever--just clever enough to identify which files have been modified or added since the last backup, and copy those files to an external drive.

UPDATE: It turned out to be simpler for my son's needs to just set up a crontab to run rsync to do the backups.
