Hi,

In your case I'm guessing you want free, quick and easy. In which case the following may help advising use of the free version of Macrium Reflect (although i'm sure there are many others):

Or this utility:

You can do it with Drive Copy 15: https://www.paragon-software.com/home/dc-professional/index.html
It can do a single cloning or when a scheduler configured - do the daily cloning so that at any time the drive can be replaced.

I used both macrium reflect and clonezilla (free, both) to do this.
