I use FreeFileSync.

Unlike previous file sync apps, I've not had any problems with it as far as I can remember.

I like Syncback - http://www.2brightsparks.com/syncback/ - you can either use it to back up files or to sync them between two computer or your backup drive,and you can set it to automatically back up. I've been using it for a few years and it's got me through a couple of change of computers and few crashes.

As well as regular backup software, look into using online storage to backup your most important data. Dropbox, SkyDrive and Google Drive are a good place to start.

Acronis is another to consider, not free.
