Simple Data Backup

1. Only new files and files that have changed should be copied.
2. Only the most recent copy should be retained, not past generations.
3. The original file extension must be retained.
We run XP Home Edition and I have loaded the Backup Utility for a try, but it does not meet the above criteria.
Thanks for any help you have to offer.

I believe you could do that with a batch file. I haven't tested it, but I think this command will do it. UNDERLINED text is a variable you'd have to change:
xcopy SOURCE\*.* DESTINATION /s /m /c /y

Thanks for the xcopy tip. Given my low level of expertise I'll have to play around a bit with the XP command prompt, but I think it's doable for me. I have used DOS in the past, so that part of it is not foreign to me - just very rusty.
