How can I automate Richcopy to copy files from a remote server to a local server?

I'm trying to find a way to copy some files from a remote server that need to be backed up to a server we have locally here so they can be put on the backup tapes.  I'm able to use Richcopy to manually copy the files, but I'd like to automate it to do a copy each night of the new files that get added to the folders each day.  I've tried using Scheduled Tasks, but couldn't get it to work correctly.  

Any help with this would be great.  If there are any other suggestions other than using Richcopy I'd like to hear those also.

I'm not very good with command lines, so GUI would be the preferred way to do this.
