Windows 7: Windows 7: Setup Multiple Back Ups for Certain Drives

Windows 7: Setup Multiple Back Ups for Certain Drives

Hi. I have about 5 internal HDD and 9 external (USB+1 Network) HDD.

I'm trying to setup a separate backup drive for 4 internal HDD. For example:

Drive: D to backup to Drive: I (usb)
Drive: E to backup to Drive: L (usb)
Drive: G (usb) to backup to Drive: J (usb)
Drive: H (usb) to backup to Drive: K (usb)

I need a way where it will make a copy of the 1st HDD to the 2nd HDD and also check for changes so both drives stay in sync. So 4 HDD to be copied to 4 other HDD and stay in snyc.

Can this be done within Windows 7 Pro 64-bit? It only lets me make 1 backup drive. It does not let me choose a Mirror option; Yes I am logged in as Administrator.

Or is there a software can you can recommend where it will let me do this? Your help is greatly appreciated.

Using the built-in robocopy with mirror option will do it very fast you can download a free GUI for it to make it simpler
