What is the difference between back up and copy?

I wanted to backup some photos to my external HDD, I was wondering what is the difference between using WD Backup software vs manually copy pasting the photos using zip files. which is better in your opinion ?

For backing up media eg. Movies, Photos and Music …me personally, i’ve never used or trusted Backup Software and have always done a manual copy/backup.

If you’re backing up software installations and OS with registry files … then that’s when backup software would have to be used.
