    I set up goodsync to back-up my my chapters as I write my thesis with revisioning to dropbox.
    After windows 10 died on me (a had to use the reset function) I lost my appdata folder. I noticed that I have 100GB on onedrive so I set up goodsync to back up appdata. Goodsync works well be that analysis can take ages as does that actual data transfer. It seems that the transfer speed is around 2KB/s.

    I would like a free or affordable solution that can sync my appdata (daily), documents (daily with revisioning) and a local backup of my photo folder to a second drive (weekly).

    IDK how well it plays with onedrive as my needs are fairly basic but SyncFolders maybe worth checking out.

    I use the free version of Syncback to sync work folders daily with my backup memory stick, which has worked well for years.
    Again, no idea on large files/folders, but it is good stuff

    It doesn't seem to have cloud support.

    SyncBackPro V8 (£50) is the only version that supports with cloud support.
