Arcamatic Backup is a desktop utility for making low bandwidth Windows machine-to-machine backups of specific directories.  Ideal for taking fast backups of directories on a virtual machine, Arcamatic only transfers files that have changed or do not exist at the backup destination.

Arcamatic includes a number of features that make it ultra fast, including zipping files before transferring, using difference hashing to compare files without actually transferring them as well as the ability to optimize send and receive buffers.  Ideal for developers and other technologists that need to routinely copy files from one or more virtual machines to a centralized location to create a consolidated backup from.

Note that licensing is per server, client licenses are free.
