    How to make a regular backup on PC?

    A computer I'm building has an SSD as the main drive and a partitioned mechanical drive as a back-up.

    I want to set windows up to make a regular backup to the mech drive.

    I've found things like this: https://www.windowscentral.com/how-m...kup-windows-10
    But they are not regular and needs the user to act.

    Anyone know, without going to 3rd party products, how to do it?

    Windows 10 by the way.

    Another method is to use the Windows 10 Task Scheduler feature (think poor mans Cron from unix) and use it to run a powershell script which will copy whatever folder you want backed up to wherever you want.

    google shows plenty of different examples of how to do this, this is one (not tried it myself though)
