Is there a program which will automatically create a copy of any newly created or modified file to a second hard drive? I have a client who has a second hard drive in his computer and wants all files duplicated in real time to ait.

Yes there are many programs that can accomplish this but most of them are fairly pricey.  I have had great deal of luck using Double Take.  I have actually replicated multiple servers to remote locations using this product and it is awesome but it is expensive. http://doubletake.com

There is a freeware out there called Allsync at this link: http://allwaysync.com/  

I do not have any experience using this product so I cannot vouch for it.  However there is another alternative you could simply mirror the drives within the Operating system or your hard disk controller (RAID1) .  This way anything written to the first disk would be mirrored or written to the second disk.  This is very easy to setup, assuming the second disk in question can be formatted and wiped clean.
