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.
