Possible to sync folders between desktop and laptop over local Wifi?

Hi,

I have a desktop, and a laptop, that I'd like to sync my movie, music and picture folders between (and maybe a few other folders as well if it works as expected).

The desktop has Windows 7 Home Premium and the laptop has Windows 7 Ultimate installed.

Both computers are connected to my home network via Wifi using a Cisco E2500 router.

I do have both Dropbox and Skydrive, however these services has a storage restriction. Also, I'm not interested to upload these folders to internet when they are just supposed to be synced between the two mentioned computers.

Is this at all possible?
