OSNews, Generic OSes First of all: the entire OSNews team would like to wish you a very merry Christmas. Even if you're not religious, there's always porn on the internet, right? Anywho, these wishes are a bit tardy, but that's because I've been fighting a battle with my computer the past few days trying to find a way to record Minecraft footage so I could make a Christmas wish from inside my creations - a losing battle, so it would seem. So, for Christmas, I have two OSNews Asks items for you to ponder. First, help me record Minecraft footage. Second, and this is of more practical use to myself and probably others as well, help me to set up an automatic backup solution that backs up the contents of one folder on an external hard drive to another external drive.

I have used Microsoft's SyncToy. It's easy to setup and use, with many options for what and how to synch. It's free.

Exactly what I was going to recommend. It works and is easy to setup. It works across XP, Vista and Win7. It uses the built in Sync services that you can also get working by yourself but SyncToy is so much easier.
