    Are you talking about a program like this, or this one from Microsoft? Looks like they will synchronize certain folder/s and make scheduled backups among other things.

    You might consider setting up RAID1 with your hard drives, but that will mirror everything...not sure what your application is...

    You might want to give Microsoft's SyncToy a try. If I understand correctly, it does exactly what you are describing. Synchronizing certain directories right? Here is an article describing more about the product.
