need recommendations for backup software

need recommendations for backup software
looking for a free presumably open source backup solution from laptop to usb external hdd.  may consider a small purchase price if recommended.  wondering what others use.

windows file history is wacky and untrustworthy, omitting some and duplicating other folders and subfolders despite being listed on the config page; worse, it ignores D partition folders added to the config page.  I've tried deleting the back up from the external drive and trying again after reconfiguring the list of folders to backup, to no avail.

win7 backup seemed to work but not sure it syncs (updates files) easily over time and at first glance may not allow easy search, view and restore of individual files.

I tried the Easus free product; it has display problems and seizes during configuration.   

my wife uses dropbox and I might have to as well but I prefer local storage.  at the moment I'd guess I need most of the space on my 500gb external hdd for data, not including a system image.   

suggestions appreciated!

OS: 64 bit win10 home edition

RE: need recommendations for backup software
If you are wanting to sync your PC to an external drive, try SyncToy 2.1(x64).  It acts like rsync to a great degree.  It is a free Microsoft program that can be downloaded from their site.
