Hey everyone,

I have a PC & Laptop and have my music library folder copied to both of them. Currently, I'm having to manually transfer files from the PC to Laptop. The problem with this is that I sometimes tend to miss any new files added so I was wondering if there is any software that can make this process easier by possibly mirroring the folders (highlighting which files are on A and not B)

Thanks

Have a look at Synkron here.

Have you ever considered a NAS drive?

Thank you so much for the replies, I will take a look at the software listed.

I haven't considered a NAS drive but quite interested now you have mentioned it, how would this work?

Depending on the size of the files Dropbox/Skydrive.

Otherwise rsync/robocopy.

A bit old, but this article covers the basics.

A NAS drive would centralise your files so any device (PC, laptop, tablet, streamer, etc) that is connected to your home network can access them. There are various options starting from 80 though something several hundred depending on what you want to do with the NAS

As for software to sync between two PC, have a look at puresync

I do this with Bluetooth overnight.

Slow but it works but you do need the Bluetooth aerials of course and have to open every folder which can be a bind if there are too many of them.

Perhaps not suitable if you are a business.
