troubleshooting Question

How do I back up to the cloud and add ONLY changed info each week? (Yep, that simple...I hope.)

I have been struggling for a couple of months now with what I thought would be a simple problem.

I have an external drive which I use to store files i use weekly, that obviously change weekly. I want to back the drive up to the so-called cloud so I have a safe (I hope) off-site backup.

Now, here's the important thing for me: I want to be able to EASILY save the data that has changed since last week (and any new files that have come along). Can I "tell" the backup to just change the changed data and add the new files, or do I have to let it fly and back up EVERYTHING, including "re-saving" older files that are already part of the backed-up files?

I've looked at the how-to for a few cloud services and seem to have a talent for choosing the ones that are built BY techs FOR techs...and that's not me. Heck, I wouldn't be offended to be considered just another dumb user!

YOU'RE the expert....so help me, OK?
