Keeping desktop and portable Calibre libraries in sync

I run Calibre on my Mac at home and keep a copy of Calibre Portable on an external hard drive for use out and about. Is there an easy/convenient way to keep the libraries in sync between the two builds of Calibre? Can I just copy the library folders to the external drive? I want the portable libraries to always mirror the libraries on my Mac.

Thanks,
mdclanahan

You can just copy the library, but if your library is non-trivial in size you are better of using a sync tool (I use FreeFileSync) to copy the libraries as it will only copy changes which is much faster.
