Is there anyway to have files (texts/videos) saved in a specific folder to run automatically once I start up my raspberry pi?

I am creating a LAN of raspberry pi's with one central laptop connected to the rest of the pis. The files are uploaded on the laptop and shared to the raspberry pis. I would like to have specific files (all different for each pi) to open once I turn on a pi.


Could I suggest to use rsync though samba? Using this solution you can create like a dropbox-style folder, which can be automatically synchronized.
