Archiving Files

Does anyone have any good picture/file archiving software? Specifically, I'm looking for a Windows or linux program that will do the following:

1) Support full and differential or incremental backups of directories (i.e.: just the ones that have changed since the last backup or the first backup).

2) Burn both CDs and DVDs (not using other packet-writing software).

3) Create normally readable, uncompressed discs (not blob files that can only be read by the same program).

4) Preferably, include an html preview of the whole backup set on each disc.

Basically, I think I'm looking for the exact feature set of Archive Creator, but with incremental backups or "all files created since" features, which it does not seem to do.
