Default Backing up my computor, with a Ex. harddrive.

I have a exturnal hard drive, and I want to back up my hard drive on it.

I tryed copy and pasteing it, but it gives me a error, and says ''Can't copy Pagefile: it is being used by another program" or something like that.

are there anyprograms that will copy it onto my ex. hardrive?
