"Besides the fact that it's open source, Syncany encrypts the data on your machine so your files are safe. Further more, Syncany is extensible through plugins so it will be easy to add new protocols. Syncany currently supports FTP,, Amazon S3, Google Storage, IMAP (example: you could use Gmail or some other mail service that offers IMAP to sync your files), Local, Picasa and Rackspace Cloud Files, Windows Share and other protocols will be added in the future.
