Windows 10 Pro -- nonCLOUD backup software ?

I want to do some type of FULL "C" drive backup
every month, with incremental nightly backups on
my Windows 10 Pro laptop, insuring that I can
easily recover if my hard drive crashes

 1. What nonCLOUD software do you recommend ?
 2. What backup device (Synology NAS, etc) do
    you recommend so I can have about 8TB worth
    of backups, allowing me to MANUALLY delete OLD
    BACKUPS when needing space for newer backups ?

Acronis is a great option.

I've used it for quite a few years for just that purpose.

Macrium Reflect has a free and a paid version.  Lots of good info and videos.

Symantec Ghost is another product that can does this and they have a Windows 10 version available. We use this at all our Clients.

If this PC is for personal use, then I would recommend Paragon's backup and recovery free:

If not, then the commercial version.

I wouldn't recommend a NAS to backup to, but rather use a USB/eSATA dock like the one below:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA1DS28Y2007&cm_re=usb_drive_bay-_-9SIA1DS28Y2007-_-Product

Then get a couple of disks, preferably 2nd hand to save costs, and just backup to those. Remember that you should always remove the disk or at least power off the dock after the backup is finished, that way if something happens on the PC that could also compromise the backups, they will stay safe. Besides that you can rotate between several disks sou you are better protected. If you use a NAS you have all the eggs in one basket, and you also risk forgetting to turn it off after the backup, which means it will still be accessible if something happens to the PC, which may also cause havoc on the NAS.
