Sync between My Book Live and laptop

Hi.

I'm looking for a way to sync a laptop with a My Book Live. I have the following setup:

 

* One My Book Live containing the primary copy of all my data

 

* One laptop onto which I want the data sync'ed.

 

* Other units (netbook, mobile phone etc.) will access the NAS as well.

 

Any suggestions on software, setup etc.?

 

Thank you for your time.

Don't use Microsoft's free SyncToy utility. Tried it and the Samba server in the MyBookLive went crazy. Crashing and restarting many times over. Asked WDC support for assistance and generally the issue got totally dismissed.  I wanted to do the thing and NOT use SmartWare.  :smileysad:

I use a free tool called FreeFilesync to sync up my Live NAS with my Laptop.

Cool. As long we FreeFilesync works. But honestly... MS's SyncToy caused Samba to panic. That was indicated in Samba's log file.
