Default Ghosting and Backup

I've decided its time to back up my 100gbs of music, in thought that if anything ever happened to that drive, I'd probably kill myself. Ok, not really, but it'd be horrible. That music is on a 120gb harddrive along with some photos and programs. Whats the easiest way of backing this hard drive up? Should I just use Norton Ghost and make a perfect copy? Are there any better alternatives?

Side question: What is the run command to get to the Disk Manager?

Ghost isn't gonna do a whole lot for you if you unless you have another hard drive with the same amount or more of storage.

Norton Ghost is one method of doing it. You could also copy and paste between hard drives (assuming you have another one).
