What about using a repository of a version control system on the server PC
(CVS or better Subversion) to keep the files
and using add commit update to transfer data? This way you could easily
recover any mistake you do on your data
but there is need for more space. Subversion also has a binary diff
algorithm to store differences for non textual files.

This could easily serve as information transport mechanism and some script
that do an add on creation of new data
(provide connection is not needed), do a commit when there is a connection
and do an update on the serve could
do the trick.

Just my 2c and yes I've been working _a lot_ with subversion lately :)
