So... you're looking for a solution to a problem in a Windows
application, written in a proprietary (Windows-only) programming
language. So far, so good.
May I ask why you're asking that question of the _Linux_ Gazette?
It does not seem likely to produce results.
Now, had you asked that question about a Linux application, the answer
would be trivial: e.g., a cron job that will run a shell script to tar
up a bunch of files and then FTP (or rsync, or whatever) the tarball
elsewhere. Case closed, problem solved.

So, Aviongoo Sales (some parents should be shot. I'm just sayin'.) - since
you are, theoretically, a VB programmer, why don't you study the language a
bit more, come up with a solution, and *sell* it to all those people
clamoring for a solution? Given that there are millions of them, you're
sure to make out quite well.
