I have an hourly PHP backup script for my MySQL Database, but now I need a way to synchronize the newest backup file in the bunch to a remote server.

Both of them have IIS installed, and both have MySQL + PHP Installed. Is there a better way I could be doing things, if there isn't a way to sync the two folders?
