I work in a small office.  We have about 15 in-house employees, with 10 more mobile employees.  The mobile employees use SonicWall to connect to our VPN.  We are all Microsoft based, 2000/XP/2003

We want to make an efficient automated once-a-week backup system.  Currently, everyone copies their important files to one main file server.  This file server is then backed up on a 40/80 GB tape drive.  However, they often forget, are too lazy, or just don't know what files to move over.  Some even don't know how.

We want to automate this process without buying expensive software that is probably too big and complex for our simple needs.  It would help if the files are copied to the server with some sort of script, but it is not necessary.  Does anyone have any ideas or good websites that may help me?
