SQL Express 2005 does not have SQL Agent, so you will need to schedule the backup job using Windows Scheduler.

Read up on the BACKUP DATABASE command - which give a number of options regarding the destination.
It could be worth adding some notification on the Scheduled job - for success\failure

Try out SQLBackupAndFTP. It's an easy tool to schedule backup jobs. You can save your backups to local folder, FTP, Dropbox, Google Drive or Amazon S3. There is free version with basic features, also you can try full version in trial mode.
