there are many ways:
1) You can use the command
cp <folder>/<*.*> <newfolder>
this will copy all files from one location
to another and the other location can be
another disk/partition on your machine or
to a networked system.
2) You can use a number of back-up applications
inclusive of zipdrive, cdr/w drives or
dvdr/w drives as the target of backups.

Not knowing what resources you have makes the answer kinda vague ... sorry.
