This should be easy but I am having problems.

I need to copy files from a local folder to a shared folder on the server.  I need to have all files copied over no matter how deep into the folder structure it is.  I also do not want to over write duplicate file names.  This will all have to run weekly on a windows 2000 machine that cannot have any software installed on it whether it is logged in or not.  

Patients come in every day and have medical images taken.  These images are then copied to a subfolder based on patient name.  In that folder is a folder based on date.  The information on the local computer will stay pretty close but some things might be deleted or added to the sub folders.  The server copy should never have anything deleted only added to.

These computers are on different networks and the local computer is not always logged in.  Also the mapped drive will only be mapped during the backup time.
