login to remote Win10 and retrieve file

au flag

Currently doing a manual daily backup of certain files, tars and zips, from a number of Win10 boxes to a master Win10 box. Backups are done by RDP - copy - paste. There has to be a way to script this. Please avoid: network file share, folder mapping, installing ssh or other server, or any permanent connection. The idea is to script what has been happening manually: open a connection with the known login, grab the files, and close the connection. Is there a way for a batch or powershell script on the master to fetch these files using the known user/pass on the remote boxes?

Not really network file sharing necessarily or folder mapping, but could you just simply copy from the `C$` administrative share to the master `C$` administrative share? By network file share I'm assuming you don't want to share the folder with the backups, which the administrative share is already shared by default usually.

Using C$ requires enabling file and print sharing. This is not enabled.

Administrative share are enabled by default (aka c$, or IPC$, etc..) Please state why you block that as it prevent to manage those computers in the end.

yes, this should be possible using powershell scripts:

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
