Getting scared of the ransomware horror.

I run businesses on these computers and need to adequately protect the content and operability even beyond Kaspersky and Malwarebytes, both of which I employ daily along with upwards of 20-30 digit passwords on every computer and application.

You ask about backing-up one PC but your question also hints that you have several PC’s to backup (” on these computers”). You need to consider if you wish to protect your files and/or your system. Windows 10 has some effective backup tools built-in and there are many third-party tools that you can use (just Google “Windows 10 backup tools”). However, your main concern seems to be about ransomware. If that is the case, make sure that your backup volume is only attached to your PC when you are backing-up data. Recent ransomware finds and locks all network attached volumes, so your backups will also be encrypted and locked if your backup is a readable system volume when the infection is live.
Good luck.

Hi Muywriter,
Another way of backing up your data could be an online cloud backup solution, here is a link to a review of multiple solutions.

This would prevent you having to do it manually each day and prevent the risk of your backup media being infected if left connected to the device.
