    Does any software or combination of software exist which can provide a sync solution for keeping specific folder/folders synced to a handheld on a regular basis?

    What I'd like to do is sync a certain directory on my file server which contains downloaded Internet radio shows. I'd like those shows to be automatically synced with my Treo the next time I sync, or, even better, I'd like the sync to happen automatically when I connect the hotsync cable.

    The key is that it would automatically sync the contents of the desktop folder, rather than having to choose specific files to be transferred. It should also delete older files from the Treo which are no longer in the desktop folder (i.e. a one-way sync.)

    So, can this be done?

    Yes, use an app called Bluesync. It actually backs up and syncs the entire SD card, but I think you can specify specific dir as well:

    Thanks for the suggestion, but bluesync only works on Windows. Bah. Anyone know of anything that'll do this for the Mac?

    Hmmm...sorry don't know about the mac. But do you have missing sync?

    It will at least allow you to drag files easily to the card for simple transfers...

    Yeah, I do have Missing Sync, but to sync files, I need to run the Missing Sync client app on my Treo, which exports the SD Card to my Mac. Then I need to browse to the folder I want to copy files from, and do the drag/drop thing (or do the copy operation from a shell.) I was hoping to make this more automatic.

    I just submitted a feature request to the Markspace guys for auto-sync of folders, we'll see if they can do it. I was hoping something else might be out there in the mean time. If anyone else knows of something that'll do it, please let me know.
