    <p>Cloud sync is no replacement for backup.</p><p>Win10 again has the old and reliable Win7 file-based Backup which had been removed with Win8.1. See "Backup, Go to Backup and Restore (Windows 7)". I configured it to wake my PC at night and automatically do a backup (file-based plus image) to an external HD. Every couple of weeks or before important actions I swap this HD with one in an offsite safe. It works totally unobtrusive, supports EFS (which File History still does not) and has robustly restored older versions of files and ones that I accidentally deleted.</p>
