There are quite a few rsync utilities for OS X here which you can sync your files with Windows.

There is a program called PC-Mac-Net FileShare form Lava Software that will do it, as well as much more at prices ranging from free to $24.95.

Details can be found at:

There used to be a program called ExecutiveSync that later became You Synchronize.  However, it went into limbo earlier this year when You Software did not renew the agreement with the developer, Jason Weber.  According to Jason's website, he's still working on the program and plans to have it back on the market later this summer.

Hope this helps.

rsync only need to be install on one side, while the other side you just need to make sure that there is permission for files to be written to.
