Robocopy how?

Need to back up data-drive regularly on drive F and send to data-drive G

Robocopy has been mentioned as win7 built-in. I'm confused what is it & how to use it?

It's a very potent and powerful tool.

If you don't have significant experience with it, you could find that it didn't work exactly as you expected and you could be in for some unfortunate surprises. It isn't forgiving of user mistakes and can be cryptic to the uninitiated.

I'd suggest you use another tool unless you are willing to take the time to fully understand it.

Robocopy still the best option?
I've never had a backup routine but am about to begin. Was going to implement RAID 1 but after some forum education am finding out a removable backup disk is what I really want.
