If you have good internet access then use DropBox, (has the added bonus of keeping the files on the dropbox server too) - otherwise use robocopy with suitable switches in a batch file and schedule the batch file to run every 10 minutes or so?

if you want to avoid geographical/disk size restrictions and privacy loss from Dropbox then I recommend using Owncloud (free).

Create your own dropbox-like server with a client that will synchronize remote computers with your server: http://owncloud.org/

If this is done inside your home network, it will be faster than dropbox (no round-trip to an external server) and you can share whatever amount of data is necessary. It has a windows program to keep folders synchronized.
