I'm curious how you are using it. I assume its not for remote backup
of files because you'd have your files on your computer and push them to
owncloud... which is on the same computer.

I've used Dropbox and spideroak for backups and both of them seem to do
it ok, but it still seems a bit fiddly to me.
