Backup on Windows utterly sucks and has for decades; can you help?

Why did MS actually bundle the backup utility ? It would be better that it didn't exist at all.

On my Win7 workstation I have a dedicated 2Tb disk to backup my 120Gb SSD windows OS + 2nd SSD disk of 120Gb.
Since the free space of 2Tb of the backupdisk is added to the total backupsize, it thinks it should backup 2.2Tb of data to the 2Tb disk. It actually tells me in the 'manage space' window that it counts the 2Tb free disk space. Therefore, it is unable to backup this data to the disk.This would be hilarious if it wasn't so sad.

Still need a descent backup/restore utility for windows...
