Dear Ankush

simplest way would be using crontab to copy whatever you want to
whichever place you want....

you can use some common commands like scp, rsync, cp, tar, cpio, gzip,
bzip2, ftp....

or just use a full fledged solution like amanda, bru, bruserver, ....

you might also write your own scripts or programs, that do the job...

to find out where your files are, simply look up your guides that
helped you configuring them...
