I was wondering if there was some sort of free software where I can run a backup utility on my PC and load the files onto my Mac without having to manually copy all the files myself?

Is the PC and Mac on the same Local Network? – Canadian Luke Jan 5 '12 at 23:13
@Luke Probably, but I can't say for sure and anyway this is for a friend and I don't think she'd know how to network them. – bought777 Jan 5 '12 at 23:45

This should do the trick:

Free software to automatically sync collections of files on different computers. It's peer-to-peer and works both when the computers on the same LAN (very fast) or even across the internet. They have a version for PC and Mac, so just download the appropriate one on each computer, define the directories you want to sync/backup and you're in business.

Good luck,
