    I am request info on a better way to back up external hard drives. we would like an automatic back up that would back up new files on a daily basis.

    Currently are running Windows 7 home edition,500 gb on a 64 bit laptop. we have approximately 3.5 t< A 1.5t,a 1t,a 500gb,a 320gb, and a 250gb external drives in addition to the 500gb drive on the laptop> of external storage< hard drives, no server as of yet>. We currently save mainly Pictures and art for digital scrappingbooking.

    It seems that no matter how many external HD we get they fill up rather quickly.< 3 to 6 months>.

    Is there a way to set up software to automatically update new files daily?
    I am considering a 2 t external for a back up to the current drives we have.
    All of the family pics have been saved to these drives, so a loss we not be good.
    We tried mosy but the uploads seem to always get stopped by our Internet provider, because of size.

    I appreciate in advance any advice that can be offered
