Create a BAT file to move all the files to the archive folder (Using the MOVE command) and then schedule it to run as a task at the required time.

You could create an AutoIT script, the software is free and you can run it and have it trigger at your required times.  You can set the files you want it to backup or folders.  You can also get a Lot of help from their website in the forums.
