I've got a NAS and a portable HD. I want to protect/copy/duplicate the music files between them as my collection grows. What seems to me a simple proposition is a big PITA...
I've been using TreeComp to compare the two collections and handle the updates directory by directory, but I'm hoping for something that can just handle the whole thing mostly unattended.
I'm not concerned with time/date stamps, size or anything else beyond simple file presence. Anyone know of a tool cool enough to handle this simple job?

For many years I have used a product called SyncBack. In addition to more traditional backups, it can mirror (copy changes from A to B) or synchronize (copy changes from A to B and from B to A). You can set it to run on a schedule or manually.
They have three versions available, SyncBackFree, which should be adequate for your needs, and two paid versions, SyncBackSE and SyncBackPro which add features like backing up to DVD, Google Drive or FTP.
You can get the free version from http://www.2brightsparks.com/freeware/freeware-hub.html
