Backup and Restore software to run on Windows 10 .
I am looking for software similar to Windows Server backup software that backs up daily, and you could go in an restore based on a specific day in the past etc..
I want to be able to run this on any Windows 10 computer ..connect to the backup file and then look inside it, based on a specific day in the past and then restore only what I am looking for.

Most every 3rd party out there can do that.
Paragon and Acronis come to mind.
Under $60 bucks.
Without knowing what type of environment (home/business), it's hard to give specific recommendation, but I heard good things about Easeus backup products. Below link is for home version.

If you are looking at just backing up files (vs. full drive backup suitable for bare-metal restore), look at File History that is built in to Windows 10.  It may do the job and is already included.
Amazon Web Services

Are you thinking about creating an Amazon Web Services account for your business? Not sure where to start? In this course you’ll get an overview of the history of AWS and take a tour of their user interface.

File History is a somewhat hobbled mechanism, IMHO.  I prefer paragon software.
@Thomas:
Not disagreeing... just trying to get your perspective.
What shortcomings to you find with File History if all one needs is backup of data files?  I don't think it is perfect, but the price is right and it seems to do basic file backup with history well enough.

Thanks to all for your willingness to assist so far.  Specifically for a business, I am looking to back up mapped drive to a network share, and the Paragon Suite and the Easeus software that I have tried do not allow you to backup from a mapped drive/network drive etc.. to another networked drive.   So that is my dilemma at this point.  Any suggestions?
These work with mapped drives:

StorageCraft ShadowProtect SPX .
About $100.

Acronis Workstation.
$99 bucks.

Why not using the Veeam Endpoint Backup?
it is free and does it better than the Windows backup: https://www.veeam.com/windows-endpoint-server-backup-free.html
Why aren't you backing up the mapped drive from the device that holds the data?

Veeam will not allow you to backup from a Network Share..

@CompProbSolv - Thanks, however the network share is actually a Shrepoint Shared Documents folder.
I want to back that up to a local NAS.

Got it.  File History won't be of any help here.
I've use SyncBack (from 2BrightSparks.com) before with good success.  There's a free version, but it won't do versioning (keep old versions of the files).  The SE version does and is inexpensive.  I've used it for local drives, but I believe it will do shared and mapped ones, too.  If interested, try the free version and see if it handles such drives.  If it does and you want versioning (usually important), get the SE version.

Have you tried with Paragon Suite and its file level backup? My Hard Disk Manager 15 does allow taking file level backup from a mapped network drive.

@CompProbSolv - Thanks very much.  I already have the Pro Version but I don't see versioning here.

Thanks.. I have the Syncback Pro and it has the versioning option.
