What do you guys use for synchronization and backup daily?

Hello guys,

We all know that there's lot of synchronize software as well as backup. For most people, they might know the Dropbox or Syncthing. No matter what kind of software you are aware of, the matter is, how often do you use them? Are you really concerned about your data privacy? Because I have seen so many circumstances that some friends told me that the data stored in "the Cloud" had been erased of disappeared. It's really boring, right?

More than one device and app.

Only your newer folk will pick out one app to backup to one device.

The backup here is layered defense. A few drives to backup the entire HDD in an offline backup then sync (there are dozens of goodsync apps) for some folders and finally our family photo collection on a few USB memory sticks.

Finally some work is up on Dropbox.

Make your backups Hard To Kill.

Totally agree.

There shouldn't be only one approach to sync or backup.

I have online Carbonite and SkyDrive For those installers or files I need but no longer use, These update and sync as they go, although SkyDrive on Win8.1 still doesn't sync correctly, so I must do it manually with GoodSync or EaseUS Backup make daily incrementals.

Use two different iCloud system is intelligent..

It is intelligent to use two different iCloud system for data saving, However, remember to have a strong password or other necessary settings so that your personal information won't be gave away or hacked easily. when data deleted accidentally and have not backed up in advance successfully, you could check some software like Wondershare, Tenorshare or iFoneMate to recover them all.
