How to mirror a drive/folder on the network to my own PC?

So there is a NAS setup in my basement, that has all of my personal photos/videos/documents ect ect, and i am wanting to mirror a specific folder on that NAS to a drive on my own computer. Does windows have this sort of software or do i have to download a 3rd party program to do this?

I have used SyncToy to do that kind of thing, but I do not know whether it can do that automatically or always needs to be started manually:

SyncToy is run manually, as and when required. I use it to backup stuff to my NAS. You can have several folder pairs to sync, and there's 3 types of sync. I use 'Contribute' for backups - new files are copied with no deletions.
