While trying to sync folders on Mac OSX I stumbled on this utility. Its available for free by its creator here
https://goo.gl/z962dR . It allows you even to run a simulation before actually running it, in order to see which files change/get deleted etc.
For those who are familiar with the terminal there is another solution. rsync is a *nix (unix/linux) command that has been around since … well since 1996. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rsync)
Open a terminal, and type
rsync -v -r A B
where A is your source directory and B your target directory.
> rsync -v -r /User/Smith/Files /User/John/SmithFiles
and the Files folder under Smith will be copied under John in the folder SmithFiles.
The -v means verbose.
IF you need more details check this site here.. someone went through the trouble to document it better than me.
