Comparing two folders and scp the difference

I have a folder with some documents in a PC at the University and a copy at home. How can I update the copy? I mean, I would like to copy only the new documents in that folder. Does scp has some option for it, or perhaps combining it with diff? I can access the PC on the University with ssh.

Try rsync. It's the common tool used for cases like your and it can work over SSH. You'll most probably have it already install or available in repos.

Ok, thanks, I didn't know about it. I've tried and it works fine!
