I will do, but need to test things for a bit before I make any
recommendation. For now here's what I do:

   Sync (Laptop, home laptop, phone, work): self hosted Owncloud via
an ADSL connection + NoIP.

   Backup (at home to external disk): Dirvish, daily, weekly x 4,
monthly into perpetuity.

Part yet to be solved:

   Offsite enc backup to Google Drive: probably EncFS by "reverse
mounting" my dirvish backup vault.
