I am looking for an application or script that will do the following.
- Sync all files in a remote folder onto a local web server. - “Sync” / download files and sync them every 1 hour from the remote server to local server.
Basically this is needed to host a download mirror for a few files for public download, think of it as a cdn or backup. It grabs the files every 1 hour out of the remote directory and hosts them on my own server for public download.
I am using Windows Server 2008 on my local server, I do not have remote access to the server I would be grabbing the files off of, the directory that needs to pull the files from is publicly accessible.
I will pay!

If you were running linux I would recommend rsync. However you could try the rsync windows backup agent. It should allow you to run it on your local server, and specify a remote folder to grab the files from. The only down side is you will need remote access to that folder (eg: ftp/sftp) http://www.rsync.net/resources/howto/windows_backup_agent.html
