rsync is good one

rsync -avz  /source1 /path/to/source2 ... /dest


Another good way that gives you extreme number of options is using tar.

With this command you can make the compressed archives of the required drives

Use rsync if you want to backup that system to a remote location such as central backup server.

use tar if you are backing up locally to the remote system (tape drive etc...)
