OK, I just kinda pulled this outta my ass, I don't know if its possible, but it seems like it should be.

My house has a HTPC (made of 5+year old leftovers and bolted to the wall with no case) mostly used as a music box, connectec via wireless LAN. On my rig I manage a reasonably vast collection of music, its constantly being updated, culled, and expanded. Is there a way for some proggy to just apply those changes to the remote location? Now I just delete the HTPC's MP3 folder and recopy all the files over the network, which takes overnight+, and is a waste. There has to be an easier way, right?

Microsoft's free SyncToy will let you define folders to synch with second locations, and give you options on how to handle duplicate files and such. I use it on my wife's PC to backup our digital images to my server. Once it's configured the first time, all she has to do is click one button.

why copy them over to the HTPC?....802.11g can easily stream most mp3s without a hitch.
