Default FreeBSD server, Windows clients, daily backups

I have a FreeBSD 7.0-REL-p4 box. I have Windows clients interacting well with Samba. What's an app or daemon/client tool I can use (for free, open source preferred) to do an automated daily backup of Windows 'My Documents' / User directories?

Hi,
You can redirect "My Documents" folder to a network share (over Samba).
Ok this is not your need but this is a solution.

Or use rsync. Bit less maintenance than Bacula
