Replication from Windows to NAS between two times

I have a Windows 2008 Server at the office which has a hard disk with Shadowprotect Backups for both this server and another on the network. I want to back them up across our internet connection to a ReadyNAS Pro 6 I have at home. My ISP has said I can transfer as much data as I want between these two points, so long as I do it, between 1am and 7am. We take monthly Full backups which total 200GB, and then incremental daily which total another 200GB over 30 days. The connection between office and home is about 40Mbit, which means I can't get the first chunk done in a single go, so I need a way to get the data between the server and the NAS, preferably via FTP, or something similar like RSync, that I can set to run between 1am and 7am. Obviously I need the transfer to be resumable.

Instead of using FTP i will suggest go for License replicated software.

tried on Viceversa pro which is free for 30 days.. if its suits and works perfectly then you can think for buying

Would this not require my NAS to support it?

We decided to go with SyncBack SE which allowed us to specify a protocol, which direction to sync, and start and end times. It's been working well for months.

Sorry for the lack of updates.
