This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
Windows Task Scheduler will allow you to setup very complex (or very basic) schedules to run scripts.
robocopy is a great tool which can do all sorts of file minipulations, it works well with UNC paths,
For example, save the following to a file called
This will copy everything on
Then, open the Task Scheduler, and configure it to run
If you are looking for an app that does what you are looking for with a GUI type interface and no scripting/batch files, I used to use a program called Watch Directory. It was very good at doing simple file and folder monitoring and moving by specific rules. http://www.watchdirectory.net/ It's not a free app but your question does not mention that the app needs to be free. Nate's answer would be a good route for a DIY free solution.
