A Windows-only solution might be to use Windows Live Mesh. It synchronizes
directories rather than files. I use it to synchronize a few directories between
my desktop at work and my laptop at home. If you also synchronize with SkyDrive
then it is not necessary for both/all computers to be running at the same time
and you get 5GB of free cloud backup (for Mesh; 25GB in total for one SkyDrive
account). However, Mesh can hang (no idea why), so don't rely on it for anything
