I gave up using "back up" software for a similar reason. I plain & simply make copies on my USB drives, & when a desktop drive fills up I print a screen grab of it's contents which goes into the box that drive ends up in on my shelf. The box comes from the new drive I replaced it with. Too many copies is better than no file.
If you use Microsoft Windows, then I suggest that you give SyncToy are look. It’s free. It’s fast. I use it to run “batch” backups to multiple locations when I import photos from a camera.

I use an 8TB NAS that is backed up locally. I also use Amazon Photos and Google Drive.
Back up software is good for disaster recovery, Acronis, Macrium (windows guy)
