Backups / mirrors, not really sure what's best for this...

I'm not sure whether I need to run backups or mirrors for this - perhaps someone can enlighten me and maybe suggest some software options please?
I have a desktop computer (Windows 7) which is where we store our family photos and movies. I use Crashplan+ to keep an off-site backup of these files, and am slowly working my way through them, putting our favourites on Flickr and SkyDrive. I also want to be able to access the photos and movies (not just the edited ones and the ones on SkyDrive/Flickr) both on our home network but also via the internet through our NAS - a WD MyBookLive which includes cloud access.
I think what I need is to have a system where all the image and movie files from the desktop are replicated on the NAS, so that if I edit or delete an image on the desktop then those changes are reflected on the NAS fairly soon after that. Is there anything I can get to do this job?
I'm not concerned about keeping a backup on the NAS of the "original" of any edited/deleted files, as we already have a backup of that from the desktop via Crashplan+
Thanks for your help,
