They are.   I'm looking for GUI software.  I don't know how to create scripts.

You can use a scheduled task along with robocopy for example

create a .bat file and allow the scheduled task to copy the files

Or use winscp to copy to an FTP/SFTP server

DFS would be better - but you don't seem interested.

BTW, a bat file IS a script!

@Lee.  Sorry, the .bat I understand.   Already tested and it's working.  Thanks for helping
