Hi,

I am using win 8 and have a huge external drive to which I want to backup my important files, this files change all the time and I am looking for a software which will update the backup every X amount of time or when the files change.
Kind of like Carbonite only to my external drive instead of the cloud.

Which software would you recommend ?
