    Question Managing Project Folders - Coordinating Files Across Multiple Locations

    Hello,
    I have been searching for better ways to store and backup my project folders. I have a couple Computers / Drives across which these folders are stored and backed up. Off the top of my head I have:

    - Workstation
    - Macbook Travel Computer OSX
    - Windows Partition on Macbook
    - Portable External Travel Drive A
    - Portable External Backup Drive B
    - Raid Array ( Primary Central Saving Location )
    - Drop Box

    Whats the best way to manage Project Folders in 7 locations. I have a lot of redundant saves and partial folder backups tying up space on all of these drives. Is there software that can analyze each folder, identify duplicates ( by content, not by file name) and coordinate my project archives? Thanks.

    I use Dropbox as a simple way to sync my laptop and workstation, and to get access to files from my phone.
    However, not everything lives there, only parts of active jobs. So I use GoodSync to quickly sync other folders, in or out of Dropbox. GoodSync looks at size and datestamp, not content (?). It can also sync network and remote file shares of various types.
