How to force the "run" of Robocopy ?

Hello Guys,
The layout is as follows:
4 Laptops connected to a NAS Maxtor 2TB.
the laptops leave the company every night.
I need a way to have their data on my NAS just in case...
So I am running a robocopy batch file that copies the files (new ) from each laptop to
a folder on the NAS for each Laptop.
My question is how to run this robocopy silently without having them the option to stop it !!!
I am afraid that they don't wait till it finishes... so the backup won't be complete...
is there a way ?.
I thought of running this batch file on log off or shutdown... but what if they stop it ?
is there a way to prevent the user from stopping it ?
thanks/

If they are company laptops.
Using Active Directory , configure Policies on the laptops, so that they cannot stop the program to RUN.
Keep Administrative right only with you

You could write login scripts to execute in the background silently upon login. Another option is use VicerVersa which gives you more options, etc. It is a great product.
