You could use FileZilla with a batch file to schedule the daily transfer. See http://forum.filezilla-project.org/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=1558

WinSCP is an open source free SFTP client and FTP client for Windows. Legacy SCP protocol is also supported. Its main function is safe copying of files between a local and a remote computer.

It has various Synchronizing functions, including "Keep remote directory up to date".
