Automatic synchronising of two folders/drives

I've been looking for a way to keep image folders on two drives in sync. The reason is that I'm working on a SSD drive, and I have a big HDD on my desk - mostly for archive, but sometime I work on older files too.

I want the SSD/Images2021 to always be in sync with HDD/Images2021 - images with metadata. That also includes Capture One Session files, that contains the RAW development data. They reside in the same folders. 

I've tried to find a way to do this in Lightroom as well, with no luck. In my system, the drives has names according to year. So absolute paths won't work, because they include the drive name. 

Can you suggest a workflow or implement this kind of synchronisation feature in Photo Mechanic?

I don't know of a way to do this. I've asked internally and let you know if I find a solution. 

I do this with Chronosync. You can sync two folders wherever they are, in every direction (bidirectional, left to right, right to left).
