Default Best External HDD Software?

What's the best software to use to simply sync one of my folders to the external HDD dynamically? As in live / constant / all the time (I save a file to the synced folder and it instantly does it to my HDD as well)?

We use SyncToy at work. It's good stuff. The only thing is, you can't automate backups. But hey, all you gotta do is open the program and hit 1 button. It does the rest.
