SyncToy to Synchronize
If you want to regularly backup your data from one location/hard-disk to another location/hard-disk on your windows-based computer, then SyncToy is very good candidate to accomplish this. It is a small utility from Microsoft in which you can easily create folder-pairs to synchronize. A number of actions, like merge, subscribe, echo, etc. are available that can be executed on a given pair.
The utility can be freely downloaded from here.
The desired sync operations can also be scheduled via Windows’ task scheduler. Simply look in the SyncToy help to find out.
