Offline File Based Backup Software

Last Modified: 2016-10-27
I have about 1.75 Tb worth of data at home that I backup to external drive and store at a family members house. In the past I have used Goodsync to back this data up as I do changes /incrementals once a month and like to do a full every 90 days.

The goodsync being sync software seems to have a hard time doing the full backups. Is there something else I can use that will do better and more reliable backups at a faster pace and without locking up. I would prefer free but I can spend a couple hundred bucks if I have to.

I was considering some sort of rsync variation maybe but which one?

I had also looked at the free version of genie backup? Thoughts?
