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

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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
