    recommendations for cloud backup and syncing -- OneDrive?

    I just got Windows 10. I've been using the cloud backup/folder syncing service Jungle Disk on Windows 7 for a while. I'm not very happy with Jungle Disk... no end of bugs and problems. Because Microsoft is pushing OneDrive so hard with Windows 10, I thought I would ask a question about it.

    Here are three features I like about Jungle Disk, and I would like to know if OneDrive provides them. Also, if you know of other cloud backup/syncing services that might be a little more stable than Jungle Disk, let me know.

    (1) A lot of control and options about what files to backup/sync, how many versions to keep, etc. I don't want a "push one button" solution.

    (2) Syncing with local storage. I can work locally if I want to, and then when I next connect to the internet my folder is merged with the network storage. Syncing happens practically in real time, so you always have several not very old versions available immediately after a mistake.

    (3) Traditional daily backups that give a form of protection from cryptolocker. My large files are vulnerable to cryptolocker... I don't sync those because I can't afford to pay for the storage of many versions, plus the bandwidth to sync them in real time would be prohibitive. I do automated daily backups to local drives, but those are connected 24/7 so if cryptolocker strikes, it will lock those too. The solution is a form of daily backup with Jungle Disk that stores just a few old versions of every file and can't be accessed by cryptolocker.

    I have used OneDrive on Windows 7. Is it pushing hard with Windows 10? Sorry not sure about that. Anyway, since now I employ multiple cloud drives to save different types of documents, I use MultCloud for a central management which is a free web app that has the ability to access all cloud storage in one place. More than 20 services such as Google Drive, Dropbox, etc are supported. It also realizes schedule backup/sync.
