    I'm sick to death with all the Cloud Services and Windows backup and file history, old fashioned as I may be I like my trusty 2 TB external HDD where at least I can have my own direct control over it!

    But, I want a good backup system that will ONLY backup those changes that have been made to my Win 10 Home PC as I work and not back up the entire works all over again in never-ending duplicates, triplicates of the original folders thereby eating up space on my HDD!

    Is there such a program out there that will do this?

    Thanks

    What's your operating system ?
    What Brand Name is your HDD ?
    How many gig occupied is your C Drive ?
    How many gig of Data do you have stored ?

    I use Acronis True Image for the operating system ..
    and Free File Sync for Data.

    It all depends on how much Data you have stored ???
