You can use Veeam Backup & Replication Community Edition which is free.

https://www.duplicati.com/ has received positive feedback, though the strength is in AES encryption and remote storage (e.g. Cloud services).

Also already built-in Windows so completely free with no added third-party.

Run as Administrator:

Control Panel > System and Security > Save backup copies of your files with File History

Select destination (External Drive or Network)

Click "Turn on"
