There are lot of softwares available to do your data backup job. If you are using windows 7, you can create autoback from system management.

In windows 7, once activated data back up will be done preiodically. You can save this back up file in external hard disk and restore the file whenever you require it.

Another method is to manually copy and paste your data in external hard disk. If you are ready to spend some money, you can choose drop box services. Save all your files in drop box and drop box will take care of your data.

There are many ways to get your data backed up automatically on your desktop PC (Assuming you are running Windows 7).. here are some common practices...

1) Use Built in Backup and restore option in Windows (You need an External Drive Attached)

2) Windows has this beautiful feature called Volume Shadow Copy , which backs up you files and folders automatically to a secured location on C drive. Volume Shadow copy is used when you face some issue on a file and you want to go back to a previous date when the file was perfect. 

For Built In Backup Refer to -

For Volume Shado Copy -
