Backup software for network drive

I have a computer that has a lot of photos and music on it. I also have a computer that has a blank, formatted drive. They are both connected to the network. Does anyone know of some backup software that will let me backup all of these files to the blank drive? Maybe something that will let me do scheduled backups.

So I'll mention once I use. It's call SYNCBACK. Found with google it's what I use to a network drive.

Sorry for the typo.

In reply to: os

I meant "one I use." Given Syncback supports that OS why not continue with more in your reply such as "not what I want", "looks interesting" or "works for me"?
