hi, i was wondering if anyone know of a good script to back up files.
i need to do a backup two times a week at 7 pm copying files from on machine to another machine, and after the back up is completed send an email message
notifying this to me, or if the backup fails also send a message letting me know.

any help, clues, code, whatever is available is greatly appreciated.

i am most familir with asp vbscript, but with guidance I can probably try any suggestions.


thank you very much.
