Is it possible to mirror the contents of my C: Drive ?

In other words, how would I make a complete copy of my C: Drive ?

Depends on how complete you're talking. FFS will copy files from one location to another. But the C drive is going to tend to contain a lot of stuff that FFS will not copy, such as hidden system files, and the OS and such.

If you just want files, a mirror (or update) operation will copy them over. But if you want an actual clone of the drive (i.e. including the OS and such), you'd need a cloning application or hardware.
