I usually use rsync. On windows server I have Delta Copy installed which 
acts as server. On rancid box, I have some korn shell scripts that has 
syntax like below.

rsync -vrtlz  --delete "/opt/rancid/var/configs" 
"" <= Where is my windows srv and 
rancid is rsync server mount point.

Then run that script from cron.

Hope this helps,
