I have moved over to using a Windows machine on Mac I used a bit of software called "Get Back UP" it allowed me to do scheduled back ups of folders, plus I could add a set of jobs. As an example I could have 2017 and back up to two externals as 2 jobs, then "windows" again to two drives as another two jobs. I have looked but am having a hard time finding something similar and simple.

Try syncback from 2brightsparks. They have free and paid versions. Macrium reflect aldo has free and paid versions. Between those two you should be able to accomplish your goals.

I find the free version works well; see https://www.todo-backup.com …/free-backup-software.htm (external link)

Easiest is something like BackBlaze online backups, which gives you 30 days of versioning. Review here (external link). Otherwise you'll want something that does incremental backups, to protection against corruption and ransomware. I have some ideas for those here (external link).

I use crashplan. They did away with their "home" plan, which was $60/year. Now it's their small business plan which is $10/month.

However, you can set it so you can keep backups of files forever, and have as many versions as you want, not limited to 30 days.

I currently have it setup to backup to a local drive, as well as the cloud storage.
