Backup on Windows utterly sucks and has for decades; can you help?

Jose Pedro Arvela

If you already have a batch script, you can set it to run periodically. That way it can be automated.

I have no idea if it is possible, but if you compare the modified date of the file on the client and on the server you can probably know if it is appropriate to backup or not. At worst, there's probably some API to get the modified date from Windows and you can save a text log on the server of the last time a certain file was modified.
