    It needs to be automatic
    Hold on. So you're some sort of product reseller, but you can't think of a way to "automate" this? Windows background? Write a BAT file and schedule it? This would be a very small/simple Bash script added to cron.

    Let's Google that: how to automatically copy files from linux to windows

    I am unsure about the setup, as "clients" and "site" was mentioned.
    So maybe some enterprise software like ibm tsm or symantec netbackup is appropiate
    or maybe a simple CIFS + cron + tar will do.

    More or less a question to dewaal.
    we just need to supply away to autamatically back up those folders on to one of their windows servers ?
    OP specifically stated he wanted to get the data from a Linux box to the "customer's" Windows box so that it was then the customer's problem to backup/save this data however the customer chooses. To me, that does not imply the OP doing any software install on the customer's systems (Windows or otherwise.) Obviously, OP has to decide if this is a simple "copy data" issue or not. Why jump to a "backup application" before reviewing the simplest solution?

    Because my brain is hardwired to immediately associate bacula and similar software once backup is mentioned.
    I may have jumped the gun here.

    So if pushing out a tarball to a CIFS via cronjob is enough: so be it

    Samba is the method of connecting to or providing CIFS in linux.
