Also, can anyone recommend something for automatic backup?

Before investing in a backup system, I would ask myself the following questions:
  1. Is this stuff important?
    Yes - carry on to question 2; no - stop right here
  2. How hard would it be to replace?
    Difficult/impossible - carry on to question 3; Easy/Trivial - stop right here
  3. Is it confidential (including stuff that you don't want leaking to the public domain)?
    No - set up a backup using reputable Cloud services; yes - use a local backup
For your irreplaceable, confidential stuff, I would set up a system as follows:

On the hardware side, I would set up a tiered system:
  1. NAS
    This should be attached to your home network and behind the firewall (don't be tempted to use it for remote access!). All the important stuff should be backed up to this on a regular basis.
  2. Local, air-gapped backup
    The NAS should be backed up to this on a regular basis
  3. Off-site, air-gapped backup
    The local backup should be duplicated, and and stored off-site (e.g. your parent's house). Not only will this encourage you to visit your parents regularly, it will also provide insurance against fires, break-ins, floods, etc.
As for software, OG has recommended AOMEI Backupper. I add my recommendation.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
