With Windows 10, you don't need additional software to create automatic backups to protect your system installation and files, you can just use the built-in Backup and Restore feature.
1. Open Control Panel.
2. Click on System and Security.
3. Click on Backup and Restore (Windows 7).
4. Click the Set up backup link on the top-right corner.
5. Select the external drive you want to use to store the backup.
6. Click Next.
7. Under "What do you want to backup?" you can select the Let Windows Choose, but to make sure everything is backed up, select the Let me choose option.
8. Click Next.
9. Check all the items you want to protect, and because we're creating a full backup, it's recommended to select every item under "Data Files" and "Computer." (If you have multiple drives, they will be listed under "Computer.")
10. Check the Include a system of drives: System Reserved, (C:) option.
11. Click Next.
12. On "Schedule," click the Change schedule link.
13. Use the available drop-down menus to select how often, what day, and what time, you want the backup to run. (It's best to select a time that you know you won't be actively using your device.)
14. Click OK.
15. Review your settings, and then click the Save settings and exit button.
