    Try installing Filezilla, plus its shell extensions.

    Then create a script (batch file) that does your FTP Transaction...

    Then use windows scheduler to run this script daily.

    There's also a free backup program called cobain backup that supports backing up to an FTP server.

    Also, this thread is kind of old.
