Background backup suggestion

I am looking for a background backup utility that will watch for anytime I save a file to my hard drive and immediately zip it to an encrypted zip file then upload it to my ftp site. If my Windows 7 notebook is not connected to the internet, the utility will log the file and upload it as soon as I am connected. I would like this all to happen automatically once it is set up without me doing anything on a routine basis. Since it is a notebook, l frequently have it on standby so backing up on a schedule will not work. Also I would like backups to occur automatically immediately after saving a file to reduce the risk of loosing data if the computer crashes between saving and the next scheduled backup.  Sort of like a cloud based Raid 1 mirror. Free would be nice. Any suggestions? TIA
