    - pCloud

    Some may be web-based only but I've used Dropbox, OneDrive before and liked them.

    Edit:
    As for alternatives of the software you've been referring to look at:
    Jumping Bytes Software - PureSync - Synchronize and backup files and folders
    Never used it before though.

    I use regular local back-ups for personal documents and system image alongside cloud storage. However, all content I push onto cloud storage is encrypted and then stored inside of a password protected archive using a random secure password.

    Never had a need to use the specific software you're after. I just use a normal backup software for the image and I manually backup personal documents.

    Sync Back, the software I use to sync the files from my PC with the files on my external HDD. It has very good decision options, e.g: what to sync, what to keep, what to delete, priority, and various options.
    Another good option is GoodSync.
    I have a license key for both which are very good in syncing activity.

    in the past 4-5 years i've been using FreeFileSync (freeware) to backup/synchronize all my files with external drives.
    Download FreeFileSync - MajorGeeks

    WARN: The free version contains advertisment (quotation from FAQs):

    I have a great contender here - Microsoft Briefcase! I use it though to backup/sync some of my important files/folders to My Briefcase folder... and export it for use to other PCs!

    By the way, that was maybe Windows 95-98 :)

    Here's what I use:

    a) Local (HDD and NAS) synching - Bvckup and Goodsync. Both paid. The former is a delightful Swiss utility that is very fast. Goodsync is a more complex and good program but seems a bit clunky by comparison

    b) Internet - For secure syncing of data to the Internet then it's gotta be Sync.com without a doubt. Next choice PCloud, Zoolz (Amazon cold storage)

    Sync + secure backup = SpiderOak.

    I also use the ubiquitous Google Drive, MS OneDrive & Dropbox (who doesn't?) + Mega (try them out). But I don't really trust them & use Duplicati to encrypt and backup my personal data to those providers

    Bvckup is only a lightweight synching utility. It is very fast and syncs even large folders and files in a matter of seconds.

    IMO a more appropriate comparison is SyncbackPro with Goodsync Pro. Both perform syncing and backup functions. I prefer Goodsync to Syncback.
