One of the Best Free Cloud Backup and Sync Services
With the development of technology, the cloud storage becomes an increasingly popular type of data saving, which is been replacing local hard disk drives. Therefore, cloud backup and sync options are frequently used by most people.
Every cloud drive provider also offers cloud backup and sync service to its users free of charge. Users can easily make a copy of their local storage and store the copy on cloud using the cloud backup and sync software, like Google Backup and Sync, Dropbox APP and Microsoft OneDrive.
Yet, those programs can only transfer data between local and cloud; and they will not release the burden of large amount of data storage of local devices for it requires keeping original files stay locally unless you make the process a one-way sync task.
