Hello Beachhaus :)

There's a great utility for doing this called RoboCopy.  You can even script this using Powershell and set it to run as a scheduled task.

That being said- your question about bash scripts is a bit confusing- I'm not sure if you're saying you want to make a powershell script on a windows box that copies files on an Ubuntu fileserver or what you're looking for.

That being said, if you are scripting this in powershell I'd highly recommend you check out the following resources:

Robocopy is what you'd use in Windows, and rsnyc or rsnapshot is what you would use in ubuntu.
