i need an easy way to "update my local music copy" on each device. (folders and mp3 files, some txt files)

is there a better way than use SVN for this? can someone recommend a software for this maybe?

    SVN does a horrid job on this as it does not handle binary files well at all. Git handles binaries a lot better than SVN but is still not ideal. – Steve Barnes Dec 30 '18 at 18:19

SVN or any other VCS tool is the worst choice for syncing remote copies of anything. Just because it's versioning tool, not backup or cloud storage

Any cloud solution for files will be more easy, more natural and more effective way of solving your problem (OneDrive, GoogleDrive, DropBox, ...)


You may want to have a look at Nextcloud. Here is a quote from its website:

Nextcloud puts your data at your fingertips, under your control. Store your documents, calendar, contacts and photos on a server at home, at one of our providers or in a data center you trust.
