Self-hosted Dropbox File Sync Alternatives

I would like some suggestions as to a local DropBox type alternatives, in which I can install a "hands free" client on my Windows 7 laptop, and have it automatically sync/backup files, onto a folder on my Windows 7 desktop computer.  This can be either a free or pay solution.  

What is important is that it is relatively hands free after setup, and will automatically sync files as they are changed on the laptop, to the Desktop.  I see most software out there is a scheduled or manual process, but I prefer a service that does not require user intervention each times files need to be updated.  

I only require a one-way or backup type solution.  No files will be changed on the Desktop requiring to be synced to the Laptop.

Thank you in advance for your suggestions.

I use spideroak as a backup and sync software. https://spideroak.com/hive/ 
The first 2gb is free then pay for space needed.  What is nice about spideroak is everything is "zero knowledge" meaning it's  encrypted while syncing and on spideroak's servers therefore nobody can ever see your data not even an employee of spideroak. Only downfall is if you forget your password you are screwed only thing spideroak can do is wipe your folder and start over, it's that secure.  https://spideroak.com/zero-knowledge/
