I recently got a Seagate 4TB external hard drive so incase my computer crashes or fire or w/e All my data is safe.

I realize i can drag and drop everything from 3 HDD and 2 SSDs one at a time each day.
but that would suck

i need an application that i can set to automatically update the hard drive daily

i have an apple laptop that uses timemachine to save to an ext hard drive but im trying to set this up on a desktop pc on windows 8

Do you want an image level back (the whole operating system)

Or just files?

I use acronis to backup, not sure how great it will be to backup everything, but you can check it out, see if it's something you're looking for. Acronis True Image.

I use Acronis as well

Storagecraft is also a good choice, it has it's own native VSS writer
