I agree with Tim here. I set up a simple script to backup a few files,
then scheduled a task to run daily at 2am.

AT service or the Scheduled Tasks service from within
Windows itself? Both are scriptable from the command
line and elsewhere and the pywin32 packages include an
interface to Scheduled Tasks.
