You can use Windows Server Backup or Veeam Endpoint Backup. It is simple and free.

I am using Veeam Endpoint Backup, as Damjan suggested. Configured to backup on daily base, since it has incremental backup.

If you use some product like this one, then you would not need to do full backup every 2 weeks, just incremental, or you could do incremental more often, just to be sure everything is backed up.

One of good things of Veeam, is that it can automatically disconnect USB storage after backup, so in case you run into ransomware, in days after full backup, you are safe, since device is not attached.
