Windows Server Backup and Hyper Backup

Greetings!

A Windows Server 2008 R2 server is being backed up every day using Windows Server Backup. Backup files are stored on a USB external drive. We would like to 'copy' the whole content of the external drive to a remote Synology NAS using Hyper Backup or other Syno backup software. Would that be possible or do we need to perform any special procedure on those Windows backup files first before we can copy them over?

Thank you!

you need just sync the backup from the external drive connected to WinServer, then you have the answer: rsync
 
@jeyare - Got it! Thanks! Will give that a go. Have read something about VSS or shadow copy and thought that the backup needs to be 'prepared' first before it can be copied or transferred.
