Use robocopy from a cmd prompt. Here is a example of a bat file that writes a date\time to update.txt.

echo on
echo started robocopy at %date% %time% >> update.txt
echo started backup1 at %date% %time% >> update.txt
robocopy D:\D G:\Backup_D /MIR /R:0 /W:0 /V /ETA
echo started backup2 at %date% %time% >> update.txt
robocopy D:\Music G:\Backup_Music /MIR /R:0 /W:0 /V /ETA
echo completed at %date% %time% >> update.txt
REM goto start

Sorry, its a command line executable. It is probably included in a Windows Resource Kit. I'm sure you can google it or d\l it from MS.

Oh, and BTW, not sure about backing up files being used. You will just have to try it and see. I know volume shadow copying or DoubleTake would do it, but IIRC those are more for Enterprise systems.

Norton Ghost works for me. I use it with an external firewire drive.
