    I have to save my backup data (more than 2 TB). Is there any software which can save that much data?

    A little more detail would be useful; things like data types, OS, intended destination, retention requirements, etc

    There's lots of backup programs that will do it. I've been using a program called Handy Backup (see the link below) for many years & the basic version only costs $39. It can be set to automatically back up data or you can do it manually after setting it up (which is the way I prefer to back up). The thing I like about it is that it will back up data that I can't back up by copying & pasting because there are many long file names in the folders I back up that break the file name length limit for Windows but the program does it anyway. Once you get used to the interface the program works flawlessly.

    Robocopy is probably more than sufficient for the basic requirements.
