Is there a way to synchronize two folders on Mac OS X Lion on the following scenario please:

1) Each time I update or delete a file on a given folder, the other folder will change accordingly.

2) This should work both ways.

3) If I should run a program, it should run hide upon start up.

Can anyone point out a free solution please ?

Thanks a lot.

If you are curious about why do I need this? Well, apparently we CAN'T point Google Drive to a Time Capsule folder. So I thought that, perhaps we can place Google Drive on my local machine folder and use some sort of service to synchronize my local machine folder with my Time Capsule folder.

I think, you can use the Automator.

Here is a step by step guide to sync folders.
