do backed up laptops use FreeBSD or have another filesystem.

there is precisely one tool you need.
there is many "distros" of rsync for windoze if laptops run it. Not sure
what actually works but i can check if you wish.
i use rsync for backup server, just config is different: my server is
behind NAT, and it connects to backed up server with rsync
man rsync and read carefully, don't forget -b option it's very useful
