Windows 7 - Backup and Recovery

Up to now I have used Norton Ghost to backup data files, as straight copies and to create an image of Windows XP and Apps programs.
I am changing to 64-bit Windows Home and wonder what it's Backup and Recovery offers.
Will Windows 7 create an image of the s/w and can it carry out incremental backups?
Regards.....

I don't find the backup utilities in Win7 64 that intuitive to use but nevertheless it does offer both the ability to create a complete disc image and also incremental backups (you also need to create a recovery CD/DVD to enable you to reboot your computer in the event of complete system failure.)

Many thanks JayG.
I think I'll stick with Ghost then!
