Default Back up hard drive to hard drive

I use XP. What is the simplest way to back up one hard drive to an archive hard drive. So its a mirror Image. I'm building a DJ - Karaoke computer for my brother. Need to backup the music karaoke files routinely as their added.

Well, just slave the backup hard drive, and copy the music over to it. Is the HDD SATA or IDE?

Thats what I do, just back up my data onto my slave hard drive. Thats probably the simplest way. Sure you could get a program like Norton Ghost and use that, but that costs money, and then you have to learn how to use it.
Yeah, I'd just back up everything to the slave drive by dragging and dropping it to the drive. Thats about as simple as it gets.
