I want to schedule daily backups of my salesforce records into my local system. How can we schedule daily automatic backups using Salesforce Data loader using CLI so that I do not have to run the data loader manually.

There are two ways to achieve your goal:

  1. You can use dataloader.io
  2. You can use schedule export for every day in the week(you need to set the schedule export for each day of week).

check my blog on automating data-loader - https://rpsalesforce.wordpress.com/2015/06/12/automating-dataloader/

Let me know if you face any issues.
