I'm working on 2 different computers, at home I'm using my macbook pro and at work an iMac.
I'm right now synchronizing folders "by hand", meaning drag and drop, remembering which files I have changed recently ... but it is becoming complicated and I can sense I will loose informations....
Is there any application that would allow to synchronize my "working folder" automatically on the external hard drive and then put the "newer" files from the hard drive into the other folder on the second computer?

Sounds like Dropbox is what you really need. Install it both computers with the same account. It will keep them both in sync. Unless you have very slow internet or want to do a very large amount of data, or maybe google drive or Onedrive from Microsoft.
