    Hello,

    can you recommend me any application for this?
    I have MAC & Windows machine connected on the same LAN. If I download some movie to WIN, I want to automatically copy it to my MacBook. Or if I rename folder ABC to CBA on my MAC, I want to make changes on windows too.

    For backuping using Carbon Copy Cloner (backuping to external hard drive) but I don't see any option for synchronizing.
    Thank you so much.

    If you're using both computers on the same LAN, can't you just store these files on the LAN and access them from either computer - problem solved?

    No, have only 10GB on dropbox. Need to sync about 150GB but I just bought Sync Folders Pro via Appstore. Hope it will be ok.

    On Windows I used syncback (the free version) to back stuff up. You could share a folder on your Mac, then use syncback on windows to make a folder on windows send any new files to your mac as well as pull any new files from your mac to windows. syncback can do more than one folder so you could have it sync separate movie, music and document folders.

    Thank you. Yesterday I found Bittorrent Sync which works absolutely perfect. If I make some changes on MAC, it sync to windows too.

    Chrono Sync is another one, takes some configuration but works well
