Is there any reliable Windows backup software that can make this job easier?"

Step 2. Launch EaseUS Todo Backup on your PC and click "Disk/Partition" on the home screen. Or, you can click the menu icon at the left top corner, and choose Disk/Partition Backup there. 

Select Disk/Partition backup mode to start backing up your disk

Step 3. Choose the disk or partition that you want to backup as the source disk.
And select the external storage device or a big enough disk as the destination disk to save the backup image of the selected disk/partition.

Choose the source and destination disk to backup computer to USB flash drive

Step 4. Click "Proceed" to start the disk/partition backup process.
When the process finishes, you can unplug or disconnect the external storage device.
And all the data will appear on the destination disk or storage device with a compressed form by taking small space.
