    I am writing this message to seek some software advice.

    I have a Synology 8TB NAS server, which I use as a backup source for my Mac and 3 external HDD connected to it. I only use Time Machine to backup my Mac to the NAS. I would like to use a sync software to sync each of my external HDDs to a corresponding folder on my NAS. This way, all my data is backed up, and I can use the NAS to stream to Boxee on my Apple TV. Before Mac OS X Lion arrived, I just backed up all my data (my mac and external HDDs) to the NAS with Time Machine. However, since my OS X Lion upgrade, the SMB protocol doesn't work well with Boxee. Therefore, I am looking for a workaround.

    So I am looking for a software that can schedule sync between my various HDDs and NAS. It should also be able to do multiple syncs. I have looked at Carbon Copy cloner, but it can only monitor a single folder sync. Do you know any others that would fit the bill?
