    Hi,

    I am looking for an easy to use backup software which will create system image backups and also backup my photos and documents in a scheduled way (e.g. once in a month). I am currently using Windows Backup at least for my documents and photos, but don't have a system image in case of an issue.

    Furthermore, can you also recommend a reliable 6TB disk?

    Thx

    I use Macrium Reflect to automatically image my drives every night. If I want an individual file I can mount an image full to get at it.

    I have other local and cloud backups as well but Macrium covers me for most day-to-day things.

    Take a look at FreeFileSync - open source and free.
