How do I make a backup of my files?

I want to make a backup copy of all my files, pictures and music. I'd just like to be on the safe side, in case anything goes wrong.
Is there a software application I can install that would actually do the backup of my files for me? Will the backup take too much space on my disc?

In order to make a backup copy of all your files, you need to copy them to a an external hard drive. If you computer crashes, the external hard drive will be ok and it won't be affected, you'll keep all your files safe.
You can also copy all files you want to backup to another folder of your disc, but is not actually recommended because if your disc fails then everything will be lost.
