I prefer a backup program to that option. We're talking about backup vs. sync in this thread.

It seems to me that they are equivalent, certainly for the overall intended purpose.

Only if they are kept in sync, if the purpose is for backup.

Is it now forbidden for threads to meander wide and deep?

Not at all. Having many computers is a different situation than having one, and is a worthy discussion topic. But it's not a solution to the "backup vs. sync" debate, if there is no other reason to have a second computer that is on-line and connected. Do you agree?

We have three computers in the house, and a NAS, and use Cloud storage, and they all work together for backup purposes; so an interesting topic for me; but different from the backup-vs-sync topic.
