This is what I'd like: A free or shareware application capable of making an automatic backup copy of any file to any location at the very instant I save the file. Does it exist?

You could use two hard drives configured as RAID 0.

texasbuc....read This to learn a bit more about RAID....RAID0 is striping without parity...which means it offers no fault tollerance....RAID0 just breaks up the data across multiple drives....not copy it to the second drive

RAID1 would accomplish mirroring....however the OP says they basically just want CERTAIN areas backed up automatically
