RoboCopy is free and was even included in the NT Resource Kit.

You snipped out the text so I'll bring it back.

"I'm looking for a solution to create a mirror from a networked drive 
containing some 
course ware."

To me the the above plus the example showing "G:" is enough to indicate that 
all that is 
needed is a full copy of the "G:" subdirectory tree containing said courseware. 
 Since it 
is a Mapped Drive "G:"  we are working at the application layer not the 
protocol layer and 
thus have a wealth of utilities available to accomplish this task.  Erwin did 
not specify 
that the tools to be used had to be free and thus that status is a moot point.
