    I have a Windows 8 desktop and a mac air. I want to have free (non cloud) utility to keep one folder in sync between the two.
    And my main purpose is for sync movie/tv show downloads.

    I am trying currently with a windows folder mounted on mac.. will update more on ow that works out.
    Mean while if any of you have a cleaner free solution.

    What about a network HDD (1 TB or 2 TB) or even a NAS you connect to your router via Gigabit Ethernet and use that?

    Thanks but I dont want to put any money into this solution. My Win 8 desktop is connected to my TV to watch stuff on it but I download a lot of stuff on my mac. so would be great if they synced

    Tried Many of the soft wares available but not of them does an auto sync.. they all need to used manually

    You can do it through a shareware program (for Windows is MacDrive) and then use iTunes to move your iTunes Library to an external drive.
