Hi Dineshkumar, 
There's a script on the Extreme Github page to achieve just this and more.  You can find it here: https://github.com/extremenetworks/ExtremeScripting/blob/master/EXOS/Python/autofsbackuppy/DailyBack...
I want to do auto backup for more switches(its nearly 200). So this script can do that?

Well yes, but it is quite a cumbersome task deploying this to over 200 switches as you'd have to do it on every switch.  The best solution would be to have our NetSight NMS managing all 200 switches, it then becomes easier to automate backups from a single pane!

You can use something like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RANCID_(software) ... Have used it on many different types of devices but it is not plug and play like having a good NMS like Netsight.  With a vendor supported NMS you get so much more than just backing up a configuration.
