Readyshare - how to backup onto computer

I love using the USB on the router for files we share on several computers but would like to be able to automatically on a scheduled basis save those files on one of my computers so they get backed up when the computers get backed up. 

 

Any suggestions?

 

I was thinking of a batch file to just copy the files but had some trouble getting it to work - I am not an expert!

 

Would appreciate any help.

 

Thanks.

As @DexterJB says, third party software might be a good solution.

 

You could investigate whatever you now use to backup those PCs. It may be possible to add ReadySHARE drives to the current backup regime.

 

In my case, I use SyncBack to backup files to and from ReadySHARE drives:

You may need third party software/solution for what you're looking to achieve.

Thank you!  Syncback works perfectly - even set up two "backups" on alternate days so I have a plan c.

Glad that works.

 

With it "batches" and "Fast Backups", Syncback is powerful but can be intimidating.

 

I am of the "can't have too many backups" school.
