The directory synchronization tool Microsoft SyncToy is available on every workstation. You can use this tool to keep your local data stored on the D: drive of your PF lab workstation with a directory within your server home directory (H:).
Now you have two options available Preview and Run. When clicking Preview you only receive a list what would happen when a the folder pair gets actually synced but no action will be processed. This option is a good choice to get an overview about the next Run. Finally click Run to copy the differences between the two directories depending the copy type you've chosen earlier for this folder pair.
Start sync toy every time you want to process a backup and choose Run for your folder pair.
