Can someone advise what would be the best option here? I'm using freefilesync to keep a program database the same on 4 PC's and several laptops. One PC will be designated "Master" and will push changes to a cloud folder, the other PC's will be checking that cloud folder and pulling changes. I'm just not sure which option will handle folder moves and renames, etc.

Have you checked the manual/tutorials?

A mirror sync will adapt the ride side folder to match the left side folder (deleting files & folders that appear in the right side location but that don't appear in the left side source folder).

An update sync will just copy new and updated files to the right side folder.
