    You can use cron utility to schedule an event.But to copy data to a different machine you would be authenticated.(so using scp might not work,as your event
    is to be automated)
    What I would do is that I would automount a folder from the second machine(yeah,I am talking about NFS and amd)
    and run a cron entry periodically to copy the data locally.
    Might not be an elegant idea,but would work
