Third party Backup programs for Windows 10
« on: January 10, 2021, 01:19:52 AM »
I'm currently using an old backup program to backup my files to an external disk drive. I would like to find a newer third party program that is a) Free  b) can do incremental backups and c) has the function to remove files from the backup that have since been deleted on my main drive (is that called "file synchronisation") ?.

Can anyone recommend such a program that meets those three criteria??

Thanx.

I'm not sure if any of the programs listed in this article will meet your full requirements but I use Macrium Reflect Free for my system images.

Perhaps another member may know of a system that will meet your requirements, but they usually tend to back up what is on the computer at the time the back up is made.

Karen's maybe? A lot of free apps don't offer incremental backups or auto delete. Many offer those as an upgrade beyond free, so finding a free one to suit your needs might be hard. Here are 2 you might consider?
