Automatic backup of specific folder to folder on second mac in network?

Dear networkers,

I have a mac mini that i only use for garageband that is connected to my wifi network containing this mac and a second mac (my "main" computer wich is also backed up by TM).

I have made a shared folder on the recipient mac to wich i copy my garageband contents as a backup from time to time, should the garageband mac fail.

Is there anyway to have the contents of my garageband folder to be automatically backed-up to the shared folder on the "main" mac?

Cheers!

If your "main" mac has OS X Server installed, yes, otherwise, I do not believe that's an option.

You could run a script and schedule it with launchd, there's a decent blog post here, the script could be as simple as coping the files to the shared folder.

Alternatively you could use a sync/backup app like Crashplan or Synkron.
