Hey guys i am looking for a program in Ubuntu 12.10 that would automatically copy or "backup" my music library to a separate hard drive. The default backup program compresses the files and such, i cannot use it because i would like it just to automatically copy my library to the separate hard drive.

use rsync the command line tool or it's GUI version grsync. You may have to install from terminal or Software Center. I prefer terminal as Software Center is slow and cumbersome. In terminal run sudo apt-get install rsync or for the GUI version run sudo apt-get install grsync

OOPS I didn't notice the word automatic in your post. However these will do everything you want except auto back up.
