I want to have a log on script that copies the user’s data to a share with out them knowing it every week around 3pm
I also want to make sure the script only runs if they are at their site so I want to make it specific to a certain IP range such as run if 192.168.2.x but don't run if it's 192.168.x.x
I only want to copy over Microsoft Office files and I want them to be incremental back ups. I would like to add this script to a GPO

I think the easy way to do this is enable sadow copy on the volume where the users data is.

Are you looking at targeting a single directory such as My Documents or do you need to be able to get all Office documents copied off of the machines?

The robocopy command is capable of doing what you describe. It will copy specific files types as you wish and can do incremental and differential backup. You also want it run on specific machiones within a particular subnet. To do this, you will have to do some programming.

Another, thing you could try is to apply the GPO object to the specific O/U which contains the machines which you choose.

Cheers,
