I need some help to find software for Windows 7 that will backup files to an external harddrive which stores the folder structure and allows direct access to the files. By direct access I mean I can navigate to a given file directly on the drive without any software besides the OS.
I also want auto backups and during subsequent backups the ability to store just the files that have been modified. A continuous backup that monitors for file changes would also be nice.
Using backulist+ on my Mac, I didn't think this would be such an issue to find windows software that does this.
All the backup software I've tried so far stores the backup in one big file that you need the backup program to open. The one exception I saw was Seagates toolkit but it will only work on Seagate drives (I have 2 WD drives I'll be using.)
Been spending many hours trying different software but no luck. The last software I tried was Acronis True Image 2018 (the full version trial). It's options are nice but it still stores files in one big file.
Hoping the community here can help speed my search. To summarize I'm looking for, backup software that:
- Stores and allowes direct access to the file and folder structure
- Can have scheduled backups that store only files with changes since the last backup
- Continuous backup would be nice
- Not an online backup. Need to store to external drives.
- Paid or free
