I'm looking for a good free backup software. The reason is, Windows 7 has a terrible backup tools built in, Windows 8 pushes "File History", and Windows 10 has buggy backup tools. I've been getting by with fractured backups spread across four drives, but some backups are two years old, and others are on very old, likely to fail drives.

I've tried Acronis Backup, but it's terrible, and only lasts 15 days. Any suggestions for new alternatives that works for Windows 7-10?

I had the same problem and ended up settling on Macrium Reflect. It's quick and painless to set up, and doesn't tax my elderly i3 too badly while it's doing its monthly thing. Breakdown of versions and features here.

Norton. I use Acronis heavily and Acronis 2019 is really dependable and full featured for my desktop, notebook, and external drives but, yeah, you have to pay for Acronis.

I've been using AOMEI Backupper. Works well for me.

Go to www.crucial.com/clone for a free download of Acronis True Image - works like a charm - system image/clone.

Acronis True Image for Crucial requires a Crucial® BX-series or MX-series SSD
