You need to copy files to the hard disk.  For doing so, you would first need to mount the hard disk.  If your Linux is GUI and/or it is mounting it as you plug in it, that would be really great, and you should know the path of where it is mounted.

Once you get the first part, all you need is a copy command

cp -pr /path/folder  /path/mounted/external/hard/drive
