Lesson learned I need backups of my backups!
Is there any good software solution/tool to help automate two-level backups, I want my multiple computers to backed up to my first tier of external storages and like every month, have a compressed back up of those! As in plug in the disks and defining the schedule and forget about the rest?

I found Cobian Backup quite good but looks like it has been abandoned by the new owner for last 6 years, is there any free/open source app similar?

I see that Macrium Reflect is often recommended at Tom's Hardware.

+1 for Macrium Reflect. I had used Acronis previously but Macrium is a different level.

I have no experience with anything else but Macrium Reflect, it is pretty well configurable, does all i ever needed. However, i never needed to restore any of the full backups, only some files from a few days back. You can mount the backup and browse it, as well as copy files out. I haven't tried the system restore option, i didn't have to. It can image your live system, back up open files using VSS, etc...

+1 for Macrium Reflect. I recently restored a hdd, and worked from the first try. No need to check tutorials, forums or documentation.
