Question backup selected files

Can anyone recommend any software (or method) that will allow occasional or frequent backup or copy of selected files and folders, and allow future updating / synchronisation of same files (and new ones if necessary) to a secondary hard disk?

Eg My documents, favorites, outlook.pst etc.

you could use the backup utility in start | programs | accessories or write a batch or vbscript to copy the files.

the backup utility does have its own config to schedule backups. If you wanted to schedule the scripts, you'd have to setup a scheduled task in control panel.

ntbackup.exe comes with XP pro and it can be scheduled and you can alsp pick what you want to back up and backup at any time.
