Time Machine is a pre-installed application that will automatically backup your entire internal hard drive to an external hard drive. Since you already have Time Machine, why not use it? Purchase an external hard drive at least the same size as the drive in your Mac, attach it and Time Machine should open and ask if you wish to use it for backup. Respond OK. You'll then get a warning that it will format the drive (Time Machine only works with a drive formatted to the Mac OS Extended Journaled file system). Click on the link below for more info.
