    use FTP script and then schedule it to run once a day.

    Here, how you do this.

    Create a file named ftpbackup.bat
    Paste all this in it.
    @echo off
    dir C:\PATH_OF_FOLDER\*.* /aa/b/s > c:\files.txt
    echo open FTP_SERVER_IP > ftpbak.txt
    echo USERNAME >> ftpbak.txt
    echo PASSWORD >> ftpbak.txt
    echo bin >> ftpbak.txt
    for /f "tokens=1 delims=, " %%i in (c:\files.txt) do echo put %%i >> ftpbak.txt
    echo quit >> ftpbak.txt
    ftp -s:ftpbak.txt
    change these settings in this script.
    PATH_OF_FOLDER--this is the path of folder where files are located to be backed up.
    FTP_SERVER_IP--IP address of FTP server.
    USERNAME-Userid to login to ftp server.
    password-password to login to ftp server.

    Yes, you then need to schedule a task in windows to run this script everyday at any time you want.
