I have an ASP based website, (on windows 2000) which creates a single windows folder every time a user creates a new account with us. Within each of these folders, other folders and files are created with a data storage pourpouse.

The problem is: making backups (means, downloading all these directories and files through an FTP software to our local machine). I use the licensed version of cute FTP to do that, and as our users grow, the more time it takes to perform the periodical backup. Now, cuteFTP is in my opinion slowing things too much when switching through each directory and this means hours of wait before a backup is completed.

Is there a faster way to perform a backup of that kind? with cuteFTP or without? or some kind of software?
