Backup a host solution file in peer-to-peer setup

We are running a peer to peer setup where a host PC at corporate is running the solution 24x7. We do not have FM Server at this time. What is the best way to setup regular backups of the solution file? I would like to copy the solution file onto the network at regular intervals. I read in filemaker documentation that they recommend closing the solution before copying. (However I have been able to successfully make copies while it is open.) Is there a way to auto-trigger and run a script (from the host machine) nightly that would close the solution, copy it and re-open it? Or, can I Save As while it's open if no users are logged in? Or is there another way to backup that someone can recommend? Thanks so much.
