Does anyone have experience copying/backing up files from a NAS to a Windows Server? It obviously is more popular going the other way Server-->NAS.

 We have Egnyte cloud sync setup on the nas and use this as a file server but also have an older Windows 2003 server.  I want to set it up to copy the files we access on the NAS to a share on the Windows Server incrementally.

Cobian Backup or Karen's Replicator are both great, free, backup utilities.

Do you want to do this on a regular basis or just ad-hoc?

This would be on a regular basis but it seems that getting another NAS to use a long side our production NAS would be best.  This seems to be the more common approach.  Then using something like rsync to copy data over to the failover NAS.

I decided to getting a backup NAS is a more logical solution.
